Bright lights, big city, and . . . birds?
Brooklyn Bridge once overshadowed a decaying industrial
waterfront, but today it points the way to a new green
oasis: Brooklyn Bridge Park. When avid birder Heather Wolf
moved from tropical Florida to a nearby apartment, she
wondered how many species she might see there, and soon came
to a surprising realization: Not only is the park filled
with an astonishing variety of birds, but the challenges
that come with urban birding make them even more fun—and
Camera in hand, Heather
has captured scores of memorable scenes—a European starling
pokes its head out of a hole in a snack shop, a marsh wren
straddles two branches, common grackle nestlings clamor for
food above the basketball courts—in more than 150 stunning
photographs that will entrance birders and bird lovers,
wherever their local patch may be. From the
familiar-but-striking bufflehead duck to the elusive
mourning warbler, every species comes to life on the page,
foraging, nesting, and soaring in the slice of the city
where they’ve made themselves at home. Discover the
thrilling adventure of birding in the great outdoors—in the
heart of Brooklyn.
