Twitter Thread on Strangers Gathering on New York Street to Spot a Rare Bird is All Kinds of Wholesome


Daily news of violence, death and hatred makes headlines globally and it is a fact that disasters have more news value than peace. So it comes as a surprise when goodness or purity as a whole comes into the headlines and spreads positivity.

Recently, a Twitter thread was able to do this with a love affair. It happens that a Twitter user was roaming New York City and he saw a group of paparazzi. He soon noticed that his cameras were pointing towards the sky. Although their mind went straight to the worst possible scenarios such as someone trying to jump or possibly break a fire, they were relieved to notice that the lens was focused on a tree next to it, not a building.

More specifically, all the buzz were for a small yellow bird, a western tanager, which is rare to see in the location. So many spectators and camera people were focused on the silent streets to see the avian creature well.

Twitter user Warren Leight posted a heartbreaking thread and the tweet immediately went viral. Leight is not just another Twitter user and this is probably why his path with words left a deep impact with so many TwitterT. He is also a popular American playwright and executive producer.

Here goes the thread:

Leight begins his eight-part New York story by specifying its location and date of action. Tweet read:

“Thread: A New York Story – On Sunday, I was walking in West Chelsea, and I saw a brown stone sounded like paparazzi outside”.

They then recalled how surprised they were as the epidemic significantly reduced the number of celebrity sightings. “I was surprised, because a lot of celebs have not been seen during the epidemic. As I got closer, I noticed that a lot of photographers and Lucy-Luz were seen, apparently pointing to the roof of the building.

Leight recalled all the thoughts he had about what’s going on there. He wrote: “Oh no, I thought. This is a jumper. Or a cat in distress. Or fire. This year has been so hellish, I immediately assumed more bad news …”

In no time, the place was filled with people carrying large lenses and binoculars. “More and more people arrived with long lenses, cell phones, even binoculars.”

When he finally arrives at the crime scene, Leight says it is when he noticed that the focus was on a tree and not a roof or window. “I went to the” crime scene “and looked. No celeb. No fire. No cat. Loi-loos were not pointing at the window, or the roof, but rather a tree, with some golden leaves still sticking out. “

Soon, the mystery is solved. “I asked a photographer if he knew what was going on. In a soft voice, he reported that a bird seen in West Tanagar, New York, was seen on 22nd Street. “Look closely at the yellow leaf above the thick branch.”

Revealing the reason behind such pomp, Leight was told by the photographer that this bird had not been seen in the city in the last four years. “The bird, he told me, had not been seen in New York in four years, and may have been carried by recent west winds (after all, in West Chelsea).” I felt great relief that all these people had gathered – not to witness another 2020 loss – but to see a rare bird. “

His closing tweet expressed all our feelings. “How lucky I was that a street full of New Yorkers reminded me that if you keep looking up, you might find something rare and wonderful.”
