Cockatiel Spotted Between Tram and Subway around 5:40 pm Today (Mon Jul 11)and tweets:
The bird was last seen sitting in a tree at the base of the tramway tower. It appeared to have left the immediate area around 6 pm.
Before leaving the area the bird had made what appeared to be two attempts to fly across the river, but came circling back.
There is a cockatiel hanging out between the tram and the subway on Roosevelt Island. Did someone lose a pet bird? pic.twitter.com/M9OatBNDNJ— Miranda Jacoby (@PracticalPigeon) July 11, 2016
