The Magnificent Technicolor Bird Of Brooklyn Is Probably Going To Spend All Winter In The Big City
Stunning bird residing in Prospect Park! Prime Instagram fodder for city dwelling birders. From FastCoExist.
New Yorkers have been flocking to see one of the most spectacular birds in the world over the last few days, as a male painted bunting rested his weary wings in Brooklyn’s Prospect Park.
The technicolor birds usually breed in the summer in the southeast, making it up as far north as North Carolina. In the winter, they head south to southern Florida, Mexico, and the Caribbean. But one somehow ended up in the five boroughs. It’s extremely rare, though it’s happened before.
