Forget the corny headline — New York City is surprisingly a great city for birdwatching. After listening to this crow for the better part of the morning I was prompted to consider all the birds of New York City. Turns out, there are 300 species of birds in the five boroughs.
Gulls, turns, owls and hummingbirds. Rails, cranes, loons and grebes — they’re all here. What’s the state bird of New York? The common bluebird. For information on all of the birds flying around this city and tips to finding everything from great blue herons and Boreal owls to the more elusive Blue-winged Warbler visit nycbirds.com.
I also spied online a website devoted to pigeon rescue. Visit New York City Pigeon Rescue Central for more information.
