Attempted atonement

Portrait of a hoarder.

As a teen, Alex threw rocks at birds.

“I had an arm,” he said, adding New York Yankees legend Roger Maris had nothing on him.

But I got carried away, Alex said Wednesday, at his home near 96 St. and 110 Ave.

Now, the 65-year-old says he is making up for his past.

In his front room, 40 pigeons and eight or nine doves have free roam.

“You’ve probably got a boardroom. I have a bird room,” the warm-eyed, bearded man said.
