the arcadia bird sanctuary
a new jersey organization
that rescues abandoned, abused
and neglected birds,
brings several, of different species,
to bryant park.
this is isabella. she's a parrotlet.
children experiencing the feathery weight
of a small green life
in their hands
or on their heads for the first time
is a pure delight.
as is cozying up to a feisty african grey
(this picture doesn't do miles justice).
