Photo by myself in Battery Park, at the southern tip of Manhattan.
It's Thanksgiving week in the States. A week of travel, gatherings and feasting.
Above, a large wild bird in Battery Park. I'm not sure whether this is a turkey, but he looks very close to one!
Nice to know that there are birds in New York beyond the humble pigeon. Red tailed hawks lurk in Central Park. Parrots flock together in Brooklyn. Years ago, I saw a gorgeous orange rooster in Riverside Park. And now, a large wild bird downtown!
