Mid-Manhattan Library

In this illustrated lecture the author explores creatures we may see every day but never really notice--opossums, foxes, bats, swans, hawks, kingfishers, spikers, praying mantises, butterflies, and more. She describes the lives of 135 common urban mammals, birds, and invertebrates of North America. Learn how these animals have adapted to survive and thrive alongside humans in our cities and suburbs.
