A local Portland, OR sparrow spawned the hashtag #BirdieSanders Friday evening, when it landed on Bernie Sanders' podium during a speech. "I think there may be some symbolism here," Sanders joked.
Sparrow symbolism: "A common visitor, a love of old buildings, the triumph of common nobility, symbol of peasants and the common people. If a Sparrow totem has entered your life, ask yourself if you know your own self-worth. The sparrow will show you that even a common little bird can triumph."
"I know it doesn't really look like it," Bernie said. "But that bird is really a dove asking us for world peace. No more wars."
