The Metro Bird Lives
In my column on Monday I wrote about a bird that's been living in the Forest Glen Metro station for the last month. The bird was actually two birds, Metro told me, and they were euthanized last week.
So imagine my surprise when I walked into the station on Wednesday and was told the bird was still there. One of the station employees said he didn't know anything about the bird being whacked. "We were just watching him on the cameras yesterday," he said, nodding towards the closed-circuit screens in the little booth.
And when I got down to the platform there was the bird, as happy as ever (if birds can be said to be happy).
If only I had a net, I thought. The bird looked fairly mellow and I thought about sweeping him into my Lands End canvas briefcase. But just then the train came in he flew up from his perch. I'm thinking of bringing a bag or a pillowcase or something with me this morning to see if I can catch him and set him free outside.
