The crane taught his kids to knock on the door to get the humans to come outside.
So...there's this giant bird that aggressively and incessantly knocks at your door, what's the logical thing to do? Obviously, the only right answer is to open the door and see what he wants and become besties. There really is no other answer. Your best friend is now a feather covered pterodactyl, well...crane.
That very thing happened to an unsuspecting family one day. Autumn Cochella's bestie is a crane named Carl that kept knocking on her door. Eventually the bird's persistence paid off because Cochella answered the door to see what all the urgent knocking was about. His reasoning is solid - Carl wanted to hang out.
Makes you wonder what was going through his tiny bird brain when he first decided to knock. Did he think Cochella and her husband looked like the kind of people that would enjoy the company of a crane? Is he playing the long game to get them to join his multilevel marketing team? He could be waiting for the perfect opportunity to break out the, "hey, boss babe."
Right now it seems Carl just genuinely enjoys their company, even introducing the couple to his children. Cochella named the other cranes Karla and Junior.
"Junior was really funny and kind of silly. I really enjoyed watching Junior grow up," she gushes. "Carl actually taught Junior how to knock on the door as well."
The human half of the best friend duo revealed that when Junior grew up and flew the nest, Carl and Karla welcomed twins Kevin and Kyle. Carl is such a proud dad and clearly values his friendship with the humans he adopted. See how their friendship unfolds in the video below.
