Cold Lonely Bird


This morning was cool and gray and rainy. I found this bird perched and frightened on my roof outside the kitchen. He looks like he was just cursed by a witch, and the curse made his beak grow 10-fold, and now he has trouble flying.

Rest assured, however - he flew away quite nimbly when i tried to get even closer.

Anyone know what kind of bird this is?

    Wow, not your typical Ft Greene fowl.

    If we are guessing, it looks like some kind of shore bird. Maybe you will start having herons in your back parking lot with all of the rain you have been getting.
