About the event:
New York City loves its celebrities. In fact, they don’t even have to be human. Many birds have dominated New York City’s attention over the years. Some have become local legends, while others leave after a day. Still, New York City has shown time and time again that it’s a great place for not only the birds but also for those who love to watch.
