Yet Another Reason Patrick Stewart Is Brooklyn’s Finest Citizen


  • Via @SirPatStew

Listen, we all know that Patrick Stewart has proven himself to be a pretty superlative Brooklyn resident many times over, via his irritation with the Barclays Center (stars, they’re just like us!), his excellent Twitter feed, mostly just his continued presence here.

He really went above and beyond this weekend, however, rescuing a baby bird from his Park Slope back yard. Aaaagh! Stewart tweeted the above photo and asked his followers for advice on the whole thing, but later released it back into the wilds of Brooklyn, which is apparently the safest thing to do for a bird in this situation. So, if you were looking for a short, heartwarming story about Sir Patrick Stewart’s relationship with the animal kingdom, this has been a productive couple of minutes.
