This weekend, a friend of mine who likes birds and works downtown let me know that Zelda, the wild turkey of Wall Street, is doing fine.  Zelda has been quietly going about her life in the various parklands on the south of Manhattan.  Apparently she is just not the media darling she used to be–I can’t find any contemporary news about her on the internet.  I guess that since she is, you know, a turkey, she hasn’t managed her publicity too well. Here is a shot of her from this spring.

In other animal news, I spent some time in Prospect Park this weekend but I didn’t see any rabbits.  The next step is to take a trip to Greenwood cemetery—cottontails will be there if they still live anywhere in New York City.  Additionally the cemetery is one of the prettiest places I know of.
