Asked what he thought of the comments, "Uncle Mitch" told the Bulletin it was "flattering".

"I have seen a few (comments) floating around. Everyone doesn't mind a bit of attention like that," he said.

But sorry ladies - Mr Harvey has confirmed he is "happily married".

"Movie World had a rare and unusual interaction with an ibis," he said. "The guest did not report any injuries and our team was not alerted to an injured bird in the vicinity."
