FAKE NEWS is FOR THE BIRDS!
"Fake News is FOR THE BIRDS!," claimed this American Robin, when he/she paid a visit to my rooftop garden (in NYC) yesterday. For as you can see, he/she is very puffed up! This what birds do to keep warm. It seems this particular guy/gal, took NYC's groundhog's prediction of an early spring literally (the prediction was real; but the reality could prove to be fake news); and this robin traveled here in anticipation of warmer temps! However, it was quite chilly yesterday!
He/she is fortunate to be a bird in that he/she can puff up; and does not have to pack winter wear when flying!
Imagine the cost he/she saves by not taking an airline that would charge extra fees for him/her to bring an extra coat on board!
