I don’t know who they think they might be fooling, but this is certainly not a book. I wonder if apart from this one bird, the rest of the box actually contains books, or whether it contains more birds! And why put birds in a box labeled books? Is it another one of the tricks to harbor pets on the subway? But why birds?
And more importantly – what kind of bird is that? It’s hard to tell, sine he’s inside the box and all that, but it seems like this might be some kind of a farm bird, which raises so much more questions than the ones we already had! Mostly, why would anyone living in a New York apartment carry around a farm bird? Either way, I hope the bird was not harmed during this journey – because the NY subway can be a jungle!
