On Sunday evening (June 14 2020) into the early portion of the night, NYPD helicopters were flying low in the immediate vicinity of where I live. Their noise was deafening and I referenced this incident in an entry on my personal FB Page. Presumably, they showed up because protests were taking place in the area.
The presence and noise of the NYPD helicopters agitated me as well as others in the area, and yesterday (June 16 2020) into the early portion of the night, helicopters were flying low in the immediate vicinity once again; and once again, their presence was nerve-racking to me, and apparently it was nerve-racking to a lone European starling who had stopped by my garden for an evening bath.
He/she can be seen in the next looking up at the helicopter flying low above my garden.

On another note, this bird type has a story in volume three of my book series, Words In Our Beak.

And to reiterate what I've been saying here on Blogger, "During this time where many people have been confined to their homes due to lockdown restrictions (re the coronavirus pandemic), these books (whose stories are set in my rooftop garden) are great to have around as a reminder that there is still so much beauty in our fallen world."
It's also good to note that these books make for a great gift to anyone who is a dad, and with Father's Day coming up in a few days, Order your copies now to insure delivery in time for the holiday.
