Wild New Yorkers

By Vladimir Brezina

To survive and to thrive in the big city, it sometimes seems that New York City’s wildlife has diversified to fill much the same niches as the city’s human inhabitants…

Some specialize in being decorative

Some are charming hustlers

Others still are quick small-time opportunists

The hustlers just won’t take no for an answer!

Many establish societies, in plain sight yet with their own secret rules, in the interstices of the city

But all come to watch the sunset along the river…

(All photos taken yesterday in Central and Riverside Parks, Manhattan.)

  2. Wood Ducks are rare, pigeons and squirrels not so much. You Vladimir have made each of them special. Nature is everywhere — yes?

  3. Thanks, Frank! I try! Actually, I thought that the pigeons, which I don’t normally notice much, were rather elegant and even imposing in the evening light… birds suddenly to be taken seriously! ;-)
