A Long Way From Home

While on the path by the Bronx River Parkway, I saw this guy:

Funny to see a Euro-style Grey Goose among its distant American cousins. I don't know if it's an escaped domestic goose, or a voyager blown widely off course, but it's here in Yonkers- another immigrant in a city that has a thriving population of recent arrivals.

For the record, while I would not refuse a shot of Grey Goose vodka, my preferred brand is Zubrowka, which contains an infusion of buffalo grass. While I usually drink it straight, it is commonly mixed with apple juice to make a szarlotka ("apple pie").

As an, ahem, real American, we'll take Wild Turkey© over some Euro-Goose any day in the "Boozes Named After Avians" category.
