Birding at the Bridge
In Search of Every Bird on the Brooklyn WaterfronteBook - 2016
Bright lights, big city, and . . . birds? The 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&́#x80;and rewarding&́#x80;to find. Camera in hand, Heather has captured scores of memorable scenes&́#x80;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&́#x80;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&́#x80;ve made themselves at home. Discover the thrilling adventure of birding in the great outdoors&́#x80;in the heart of Brooklyn.
