BAKERSFIELD, CA (CNN) -- A California hockey team's special guest stole the show during the national anthem on Friday night.

That's Queen Victoria the condor with her wrangler.

She was center ice at the Bakersfield Condors game, but didn't really care for that location. The Queen bolted!

Her wrangler, Joe the Birdman, tried to get her, but she proves to be slippery and so does the ice. Joe takes a tumble, but gets back up.

All of drama unfolds in front of the singer, who remarkably doesn't skip a beat.

Queen Victoria bounces around the rink, eventually getting into the Condors' penalty box.

She eventually goes into the players' tunnel.

This was the first,and probably the last,condor to visit the team.

The Andean condor is among the largest birds in the world that are able to fly.

It can weigh up to 33 pounds.
