He’s known as the “Bird Man” of Newbury Street

Each day, Peter Magila, strolls down Newbury Street and whistles for the birds – and they come.  Magila, a real estate agent has been feeding the birds for 12 years and is well-known to Newbury Street residents.  The story, “‘Bird Man’ of Newbury Street and small acts of kindness” was written by Lauren Spinella, a student in Lisa Chedekel’s “Reporting for Your Town,” class and was posted in the Back Bay site.
