Tiny bird makes a Houdini-like escape by squeezing through the bars of its cage

This clever bird is like a fathered version of Houdini - craftily managing to escape from his cage.

The blue forpus bird named Fah-sai was filmed squeezing through the metal bars of his cage in Bangkok, Thailand on June 15.

The owner said: ''It's lucky I was there to see it or he could have flown away.''

Harry Houdini was a world-famous magician best known for his incredible escape acts.
