fenced sunrise.
i guess it’s a pretty picture (from about a month ago), but looking at it again reminded me of what startled me awake for this sunrise.

not her birds.
central park, nyc

This just in: Area parrots find a nice place to perch.

she has them on a leash. obviously they are her birds, what did you think, that birds just fly around tied together?

Original post gives the camera information, exposure information, etc. about the photograph as originally taken. It did not bother to say whose birds they were. However, given that this was taken in Central Park at what appears to be some kind of cultural event or festival of some kind, perhaps what we do not see in the picture is a handler from the Central Park Zoo or someone affiliated with the event who happens to be the birds’ owner and regular handler, in much the same way that zoos will sometimes send human handlers with animal ambassadors like wolves to schools and other events.
Pretty sure if they were actually her birds she’d be wearing sleeves, anyway. My money’s on an offscreen handler of some kind.

Sorry If I sounded mean, I just thought it was weird that people seemed to think that those kind of birds would just be flying around central park. I’ve never been there, of course, and I’m from Sweden, so I didn’t know about the zoo.You’re right about the gloves, now that I you mentioned it I realize how sharp those talons probably are.

It’s okay. I was kinda thrown by the fact that they let macaws sit on what looks like bare shoulders, myself, and then realized it was probably a “Would you like to handle the demonstration animal?” moment.

hahaha, first time a photo has sparked a tumblr text post discussion.
yes, she was a tourist who wanted a picture with the four macaws; the handler — standing just out of frame — was indeed wearing sleeves. ahh, the people you meet in new york.

(not his birds either)
