Many marvelous species of bird call New York’s boroughs home, though it takes a keen eye to spot them. Birds of New York City is the culmination of years of work from photographer Cal Vornberger. The product of a master photographer’s patience and ardor, Vornberger’s spectacular images, taken across all five boroughs in all four seasons, reveal an urban environment teeming with wildlife only steps away from speeding cabs and rushing pedestrians. Accompanying these expertly captured images are Vornberger’s engaging anecdotes about his experiences birding in the city, along with helpful photography tips for professionals, hobbyists, or even interested novices, including a detailed list of his trusted equipment. More than two hundred species pass through New York each year, about one-third of the species found in the entire country. With hundreds of dazzling pictures taken year-round and city-wide, Birds of New York City brings these elusive creatures to light for readers everywhere to experience.
