New York City Wildlife

All the animals on this site were photographed in Riverside Drive Park in New York City. Some are indiginous some are migratory and others came from Europe years ago and have made their homes here. Lots of detailed information on that subject is available on the internet but this site is reserved for showing off their good looks and charming personalities. Survival in an urban environment is no easy task for anyone, especially these small animals who rely on the environment for their sustanance. This site is dedicated to them .
