Bird Gets into Wall Street Scuffle, Now Safe on UWS

On February 19th, a woman in the Financial District saw an injured hawk and Tweeted the image to the Upper West Side’s Wild Bird Fund and other animal rescue groups. 

The Wild Bird Fund notified the police, who rescued the bird and brought it to their location on the Upper West Side.

When the injured hawk arrived at the WBF, the organization’s director, Rita McMahon, said that it appeared to have gotten into an aerial fight with another bird before plunging to the ground (reported by the NY Post).


It sounds like this innocent bird had an unfortunate run-in with an aggressive Wall Street type.

But now that she’s had some time to chill out on the UWS, she appears to be getting better.

The Wild Bird Fund Center is located at 565 Columbus Avenue, between 87th and 88th Streets. Check out their website to learn more about them.
