Injured Swan Taken on Subway Ride to UWS

An injured swan named Bae was recently taken for a subway ride from Jamaica to the Upper West Side, to ultimately arrive at the Wild Bird Fund at 565 Columbus Avenue, between 87th and 88th Streets.

A former Wild Bird Fund employee, Ariel Cordova-Rojas, encountered the swan when she was riding her bike in Jamaica Bay.

The swan is now being tested for lead toxicity and infections, and will hopefully be able to return to Jamaica Bay soon.
