It's one thing to have a bird poop on your head, but it's quite another when it almost lands on your head.

Spotted filming scenes for Modern Family in Santa Monica over the weekend, Ariel Winter (Alex) bonded with her winged costar, Sid the Seagull, as the bird circled around her and even brushed right over her head at a point.

The trained seagull had a special wire attached to it and a professional bird handler, so we're not too concerned about Sid behaving well, but more power to Ariel for being so brave.

Now go check your hair and body for white runny liquid, Ariel!
