    Found this bird a couple of days ago. His home is W57th and 7th. He has nerve damage and is not able to eat easily on his own. He is very friendly and immediately likes humans. Hold him for a couple of minutes and he just falls asleep in your hands. I am only in NYC for another two days. I would...
