Crown Prince of Dubai Sheikh Hamdan Bin Mohammed Bin Rashid Al Maktoum has cordoned off his car upon finding that a small bird had built a next on its hood, Gulf Today reported.

As per the details, the crown prince on his Instagram shared a video of the bird nesting on his Mercedes-AMG G63 SUV parked within his residence in Dubai. 

The video, which Sheikh Hamdan shot at a distance, shows the G-wagon cordoned off with red-and-white tape and he has told all personnel to stay away from the area so as to not disturb the bird.


Reportedly an avid lover of nature, Sheikh Hamdan regularly shares his experiences across his social media platforms.

Earlier this week, Hamdan shared videos and photos of the bird building the nest. Ever since, the royal has not been near his car and therefore told everyone to stay off the area.


Hamdan Bin Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum is the son of Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum and Sheikha Hind bint Maktoum bin Juma Al Maktoum, the senior wife of Mohammed. He is the second son of their 12 children and the fourth of his father’s children. Hamdan’s elder full brother was Sheikh Rashid bin Mohammed.

He is popularly known as Fazza, the name under which he publishes his poetry, and which means “the one who helps” in Arabic.

While the crown prince’s Instagram account with more than 10 million followers suggests his hobbies include animals, poetry, sports, photography and adventures, Hamdan Al Maktoum is also a licensed and a well-cultivated equestrian, a skydiver and a scuba diver.
