Urban Neighbors: Images of NYC Wildlife

The New York Public Library has a cornucopia of online exhibitions, and I was pleasantly surprised to happen upon its not-so-new but still worthwhile Urban Neighbors exhibit on urban fauna, with sections on historical neighbors, street and backyard neighbors, shore and wetland neighbors, tiny neighbors, salt and freshwater neighbors, etc.

Gliding through these images (samples of which appear on this page), you'll find your rats and pigeons, of course, but you'll also find your snakes, woodpeckers, frogs, raccoons, osprey, dragonflies, and even whales. The exhibit includes a sighting log of NYC wildlife and a list of further resources for those seeking to explore urban wildlife more fully.
