I’ve hardly spent more than a couple days in NYC in the last month, so, even with the universal internet, I didn’t pay all that much attention to things going on around the virtual ‘hood. In catching up, I want to alert you to a few things you may also have missed:

Melissa, Out Walking the Dog, has a thoughtful post on what to do about baby animals found here at the sharp edge of urban nature. Often the best thing is to leave the creature alone, regardless of its emotional pull on you.

Rob, the City Birder, went to Hook Mountain in NJ and watched the annual south-bound migration of thousands of broad-winged hawks. Now, we await his Green-Wood Butterfly Map.
Peter, as always, collates the migratory rush through Prospect Park, spring as well as fall, when Roger Tory Peterson’s infamous “confusing fall warblers” test one’s skills to the maximum focus. Yojimbot, meanwhile, has his lens on raptors resident and migratory on the Upper West Side and environs. The Hudson is a avian highway, too.

Georgia, the Local Ecologist, presents this primer on the tree fruits visible now.

The mysterious “walker in the park” performs the vital service of bringing together news, controversies, crimes, and views about NYC parks.

Anything you can recommend?

    Thanks for the shout-out, Matthew. I’ve just been touring the other posts you link to – what a great city of bloggers!

    Well, let’s see: Bruce Yolton of UrbanHawks.com has (in addition to his regular red-tailed hawk posts) a couple of nice posts w photos & video on a sweet little Sora that has been visiting Central Park’s Turtle Pond ( http://urbanhawks.blogs.com/urban_hawks/2011/09/more-glimpes-on-sunday-of-the-sora.html ).

    And Robert of Bloomingdale Village ( bloomingdalevillage.blogspot.com ) tracks the Cathedral Red-tails of Morningside Heights, but he hasn’t been posting lately.
