So while all the fuss in the West Village may seem strange to some it is a lot of fun for birders. Seeing a rare bird in NYC is amazing. And one of this magnitude that has never even been close to this part of the world simply amazing. The Couch's kingbird most likely was swept up the coast, from its home territory of Mexico and Guatemala by a storm with high winds. Will he survive a NYC winter? We certainly hope so, but if the insects begin to disappear we certainly hope this holiday treat will take his cue and look for warmer areas to hawk his insects and delight others.
