I have heard that with the strange dislocations of Covid-19 more varied birds have been returning to the city. Several weeks ago I caught a bright red cardinal on a walk in Riverside Park and then last week this bluejay.
This beautiful area is usually so crowded with people it’s impossible to get a picture without people in it. Not last weekend.
No biggie to the locals, it was a change for us NYers to see these scurrying across the sidewalks and slinking through the grass and the undergrowth everywhere we walked in the neighborhood. Better than the roaches and the rats back home, I guess.
