Parrot on the F Train

16 Jun

Second story in my “Feathered Friends On the NY Subway” (first was the pigeon on the 1 Train back in January this year):

Today I got into a carriage on the F Train in Brooklyn where I was met by the sight of a nattering parrot a’perching:

Preening its fine feathers:

Sharpening its beak:

Funny thing was that the man next to the parrot – presumably its owner – was totally indifferent to the surreal aspect of the scene, or to the attention the parrot was creating. In fact, I think he was simply taking a moment to have a nice little nap.

    Doesn’t this lovely post bring us all back – with bitter tears – to our many forebears taking their chickens and poultry with them as they fled pogroms and antisemitism from the Old Country?
