The Locals


David Reyes
Fort Greene

You’re known as the Bird Man?
I have African Grey parrots. One has a 300-word vocabulary. His name is Mr. Chauncey Gardner, after the movie Being There. He’s been with me for years. Subconsciously he thinks I’m married to him. They have the intelligence of a 5-year-old, but the emotions of a 2-year-old.

You take them to Fort Greene Park?
The families enjoy the birds. But there are two hawks there, so I must be vigilant.
