A Florida man who stumbled upon an exotic bird learned a lesson about wild animals - the hard way.

Rick Chaboudy with the Suncoast Animal League in Palm Harbor, Fla., wrote about it on the organization's Facebook in a post titled, "Don't Give This Bird no Lip."

A man found a bird called a kestrel and decided to keep it. A kestrel is a member of the falcon family, and is a bird-of-prey. 

After he posted a few pictures on his Facebook, his friends told him the bird was protected, and would need to be turned in. Before surrendering the bird, however, the man decided to give the bird a goodbye kiss. 

The kestrel was not having it, and took a big chunk out of the man's lip.
