Common nighthawk sought refuge under table at The French restaurant

Hospital staff received a call from The French, a restaurant on Fifth Avenue South, about a bird found under one of their outdoor tables. The bird had been seen under a table all day and appeared in distress. A physical exam was performed upon admission and it became clear the bird was a healthy juvenile common nighthawk that had fledged from its rooftop nest and landed on the sidewalk.
