During that mutually interesting conversation, you probably revealed a great many things that were important to the interviewer. You probably spoke in a relaxed and animated fashion, demonstrated some in-depth knowledge of the birds, showed some passion for the subject, and developed a rapport with someone in a decision-making capacity at that company. These are not trivial things. The interviewer may have seen you as a good fit to the team, and as long as your professional qualifications were acceptable, that's a good enough reason to hire.
