Patrick Stewart Rescued a Baby Bird in Park Slope

By

Park Slope resident and Star Trek: The Next Generation star Patrick Stewart played a real-life hero on Sunday when he achieved first contact with a baby bird in his yard, and called on Twitter to help him figure out how to make it so the thing survived. But Stewart later tweeted (heh) that he'd read the bird had a better shot of surviving if he left it alone, so "bye bye birdie" became the prime directive.
