Bright lights, big city, and . . . birds? 

Heather Wolf fell in love with birding among the tropical birds of Florida. When she moved to Brooklyn, just steps from downtown, she thought she would be hard-pressed to find anything but pigeons. But she was soon to be delightfully surprised!

True, the Brooklyn Bridge once overshadowed a decaying industrial waterfront, but today, it points the way to Brooklyn Bridge Park. When Wolf set out to photograph as many birds as she could in the brand-new park, she found more than 100 species, including some that are extremely rare to the region. Birding at the Bridge captures every exciting sighting, with seasonal tips on where park-goers are most likely to spot each bird. This practical guide and inspiring story will start city dwellers everywhere on their own birding expeditions!

Paperback illustrated with over 150 delightful photographs.

Heather Wolf will be speaking at a virtual author event during Mass Audubon's 2021 Birder's Meeting in March.  Learn more>
