An Australian couple was attending a nature show at the Australia Zoo when the guide was displaying the zoo’s cockatoo to the crowd. When the guide asked if anybody would like to meet the cockatoo face to face, a woman from the couple eagerly jumped up waving her hands. When the guide picked her, she asked the clueless future bride to pull out a “$5 note”. When the bird flew to the woman, it grabbed the note out of her hand, and flew back to the guide.

… The bird, named Euli, then brought back the receipt for the woman, and put it in her hand. When the woman opened up the receipt, it contained a message from her boyfriend asking if she would marry him. He quickly turned and got on one knee.

Watch the whole thing unfold since it was caught on video:
