This Couch’s Kingbird has been hanging out in the West Village (Manhattan NYC 10014) in my neighborhood for days. Apparently, this bird has never been seen in New York before: its normal range is Texas and Mexico. I took these photos in the Bleecker Street Playground and on Bank Street on Saturday, January 3, 2015 at about noon.

Here’s the Playground, and across the street was a Yellow-bellied Sapsucker.

  1. Great find! I had to go to Texas to see this bird. Great picture of the sapsucker, too, showing how he has really been working on his tree.

  2. How exciting! Is he/she still there? We hope so. This is deadly weather for many species of birds, especially tropical ones….
