U.S. Open

Jungle Bird Man

I Will Strike Again!!!

061812_bbirdman_usopen_launchThere were no Tigers at the U.S. Open trophy ceremony ... but there was a crazy Bird Man ... and now the guy who snuck past security and stole the show by bird-calling on live TV is vowing to do it again.

TMZ spoke with the man ... (he ONLY refers to himself as "Jungle Bird") ... who admits he had a few beers before jumping in front of Bob Costas and U.S. Open Champ Webb Simpson at Sunday's big trophy celebration at the world famous golf tourney. 

But this was no drunken stunt -- JB says it was a premeditated mission to raise awareness about global deforestation ... explaining, "I want people thinking about saving trees."

Of course, security ripped him off the course and handed him over to the San Francisco PD -- but JB says the officers were laughing with him and making bird noises at the station. They eventually let him go because the U.S. Open did not want to press charges. 

So how did JB manage to breach security in the first place? "It was quite easy," he explains ... "There was security there but everyone was caught up in the moment and they were distracted."

Jungle Bird Man insists we haven't seen the last of his foul feathered ways ... telling us his next bird strike will go down in the U.K. -- "The House of Commons is the next port of call."

You've been warned.

TMZ, how about looking into this guy's background. Is he another one of those activists that doesn't have a job, no viable income and living on the dole?

Sorry, but I don't want to take someone seriously looking for shock value. If you want to bring awareness to a cause, do it right.

This is Jake Byrd, he's always covering current events for Jimmy Kimmel and pulls stunts like this all the time. He was hilarious during Jackson's molestation trial. He's everywhere.

Hey! Anyone know his agent. I wonder if he's available for engagements. I know a couple events he'd be perfect for crashing.
