Bird Rescue

flowers Rescued American Woodcock.
 

This fancy bird, a migratory American Woodcock, was rescued by High Line gardener and bird enthusiast Maryanne on Friday. It was found huddled in a doorway on West 20th Street, stunned but not visibly injured -- she guessed the little guy had flown into the side of a building and had been knocked to the ground.

Maryanne whisked the woodcock, a shorebird also known amusingly as a "timberdoodle", up to the High Line and put it in a dark cardboard box to calm it down.  It was soon picked up by the Urban Park Rangers for rehabilitation. We wish this (relatively) exotic beauty the best of luck in its recovery.
