Another rare Kingbird, is in New York besides the Cassin's in Brooklyn. It's a Couch's Kingbird and is in Greenwich Village. I saw it as my first bird of the New Year. (It was a life bird for me.) The bird was discovered by Zack Winestine.
The bird which is normally in Mexico and southern Texas, is for some reason in some of the most charming blocks of the Village. This afternoon, it was mostly at 11th and 4th Streets. (In the Village, these two streets do meet!)
From the looks of the seeds it's regurgitating, it's surviving on a diet of mostly fruit rather than insects.
