Meet Juan Rodriguez, the Brooklyn "Bird Man" Who Sleeps On a Bushwick Roof With His Prized Pigeons

Our friends at Bedford + Bowery recently published this great profile of Juan Rodriguez, the "Bird Man" of Bushwick.

Every day, Juan Rodriguez, 43, comes out of the tent-like structure where he lives on the rooftop and tends to the pigeons. Known as “Tree,” he towers over the plywood and tarp shelter he built himself.

Check out the full profile to learn more about Juan and his birds.
