Wild New York: A Guide To the Wildlife, Wild Places and Natural Phenomena of New York City


Wild turkeys in Battery Park?

Bald Eagles in Inwood?

Falcons on Fifth Avenue?

Believe it or not, New York City is a bounty for bird watchers.

Wild New York: A Guide To the Wildlife, Wild Places and Natural Phenomena of New York City by Margaret Mittlelbach and Michale Crewdson (Crown Publishers, 1997) tells readers exactly where to see wildlife of all types (birds, rabbits, turtles) in the most unexpected places throughout the city. 

About two years ago, after a 100-year absence, park rangers at Northern Manhattan's Inwood Hill Park began to reintroduce the glorious Bald Eagle back to New York. The reintroduction didn't go smoothly at first, as illness and even transit systems threatening the eagles' existence. (One eagle from the first group got hit by a train on the tracks running alongside the Hudson River.) However, four more young Wisconsin eaglets arrived in the park last June and were soon taking aerial tours of New York and New Jersey.
