Birdwatching in New York City and on Long Island
Deborah Rivel and Kellye RosenheimE-book: $19.99
Into birding? Know 400 species populate NYC. Wait. There’s even cedar waxwings and great crested flycatchers. Plus we got us chestnut-sided warblers and merlins. See an American redstart. A black skimmer. A Wilson’s warbler. Visit my terrace and mix with my nesting mourning dove family. Better yet, read Birdwatching in New York City and on Long Island by Deborah Rivel and Kellye Rosenheim.
—Page Six, New York Post
Chatty, informative, precise, enthusiastic, and the soul of practicality-in other words, this is exactly what you want in a wise and experienced birding companion. Deborah Rivel and Kellye Rosenheim share not only the best hotspots but the best vantage points, times of day for photography, whether a scope will help or get you cussed at by joggers, where to eat, where to find a bathroom, how to navigate public transportation, and even suggestions for what else to do when you're finally done birding. Easily one of the best-maybe the best-regional birding guides anywhere.
