Birds of a Feather

It's not unusual to see rats in the subway. Usually they are on the tracks. A few are even kind of cute...more mouse-ish looking. I've even seen one bird flying around in one stop. I'm not sure how it got down there. But this morning, my husband saw this:
Yeah that's right. He said a guy came in with it and let it down and it started walking around.

Now I've never seen a parrot on the subway. A couple days ago I did see a man with a two foot single green feather sticking straight up from his hat and a purple suit. But a parrot? That's just weird.


  1. I'm having a You've Got Mail flashback where Meg Ryan's character saw a butterfly in a subway car.

  2. So ... you saw the Joker on the subway? ;-)

  3. I've been to NYC several times and I am truly disappointed to say that I have never seen a rat. I've seen people pissing in the street nearly every visit I've made, but no rats. How odd is that?

    If you have time, stop by and check out my Tiny Stories post...there is something near the end that may be of interest to you.
