I am part of a group of endothermic vertebrates. I have feathers, a beak, a high metabolic rate, and I enjoy sitting on eggs. This is a view of my hood in upstate New York. My cousin Vinnie is around here somewhere. I am among the most intelligent animals. You can tell by the fact that I surround myself with really kind human beings that put food out for me almost daily and I get to take in this view of the lake all year ’round!
