Saturday on Central Park South

Saturday was a wonderful day.  The temperture was in the sixties and it was clear that Spring would soon be arriving.

Later he returns with another piece of paper, one he caught in mid-air!  He not only helps control pigeons and mice, he collects trash and recycles.
