While producing her show from her back yard while practicing physical distancing, she discovers her inner bird lover.
Some of you may have caught that this was a riff on Sarah Palin’s famous response to Katie Couric about what media she reads, when she was running for vice-president in 2008.

Was that a vulture or just a regular raptor?
It is a vulture, one of the “old world” species (African or Eurasian). Specifically, I think it’s a Griffon Vulture (Gyps fulvus), but am not sure.
I don’t know if they deliberately picked a species Sam would never possibly see in NY as I kind of inside “birder joke,”* or if they just grabbed a nasty-looking critter from the internet at random. (I suspect the latter).
*Well, not a joke, exactly, more of a joke-like object -- it’s like a joke, except that jokes are funny.
