A little birdy told me...

What's bright yellow, a little green, and doesn’t belong in Central Park? If you said a parakeet then you are correct! I was walking my dog earlier and I saw a bright green flash amidst a flutter of brown wings. The colors were so vivid that I noticed from about 50 feet away and went over to investigate. It turns out that what I saw was some kind of tropical parakeet, who had likely flown the coop from someone's apartment. He had decided to make friends with a flock of little brown birds and was happily flying around with them like he was one of their own. My only concern is that my new friend might not make it through the winter given his tropical disposition.
