DENVER - Broncos fans can barely wait for kickoff in the first preseason game later this week. And one bird decided to stake out its perch a little early and get some face time on TV in the process.

The bird was seen sitting in front of a 9NEWS camera over the upper deck at Sports Authority Field Sunday.

The bird hung out for at least 10 minutes before it apparently got tired of waiting and moved on.

The Broncos will host a different group of birds - the Seahawks - at 7 p.m. on Thursday.
