- Story Text:Brazilian President Jair Bolsonaro ventured out of his official residence on Friday (July 17) to feed the birds as he recovers from coronavirus.
Bolsonaro was seen stepping out onto the grounds of Alvorada Palace and threw feed to the Greater Rhea birds that wander around the property.
Bolsonaro has said he was "doing very well" after contracting the coronavirus, and credited an unproven drug for his mild symptoms.
After sunset, Reuters video captured Bolsonaro riding on his motorbike on the Palace grounds.
