As Joe Buck pointed out during FOX’s telecast of the final round of the U.S. Open, Sergio Garcia picked up two birdies while playing the eighth hole at Oakmont Country Club.
After making birdie, Garcia found a bird while walking off of the eighth hole.

As he picks up the bird, Garcia goes onto ask someone to take the bird. He then goes on to hand it to a surprised employee. The employee went on to set the bird free, and the bird went back out into its natural habitat.
The woman Sergio Garcia handed bird to was Kathryn Carson, the USGA Chief Legal Officer. She said they took the bird to trees by 2nd tee.

And while the bird was back to its regular behavior, Garcia went back to looking for his first major victory.
