I am a native in this world And think in it as a native thinks

Bonus bird blogging

Every New Yorker is familiar with the scenario -- you drop by a favorite restaurant, planning on a quiet lunch, and the place is full of European tourists.

This is a European goldfinch that has been showing up at the feeders in Central Park for several weeks now. It probably escaped from captivity, since they're never seen in the wild here, and whenever it appears, all of the birders and photographers run to gawk at it, ignoring the perfectly lovely American goldfinches at the same feeder.

Everyone loves a glamorous foreigner.
