I hope this inspires other New Yorkers to help the pigeons of this great city.

Comedian Walter Masterson revealed Thursday he’s spent the last month feeding pigeons outside of Fox News’ Midtown Manhattan headquarters in the hopes of turning the building into a bird sanctuary – and he told TheWrap all about it.

He posted a video showing himself tossing bird food around the News Corp building at 1211 Avenue of the Americas, quickly racking up views. In the clip, pigeons are seen descending on the snacks. He says it took weeks to prove to the animals that Fox News was their “home,” a place they can reliably find food each day, but now “they’re all ready” to dine when he shows up. The challenge in getting to that point, he said, was keeping them safe. He polled his Instagram followers on the healthiest avian offerings and always made sure he wasn’t teaching the birds to cross the busy Manhattan street in pursuit of his goods.

“I really thank Fox News for just, you know, their commitment in this endeavor,” he joked to TheWrap. “They supplied a great space.”

The entrance to the building, he pointed out, has little foot traffic and is removed from the street. Thus, he said, it’s just a great place for birds: “It’s a very lovely space — a safe space — for birds of any kind to frolic. It’s extended to more than just pigeons and sparrows. You know, all birds are are welcome. Fox News is a very inclusive place!”

2. I can't decide what I love more...

The background music or his use of the word "frolic."



Great catch, Nevilledog.
