This one-of-a-kind illustrated guide explores creatures we may see every day but never really notice--opossums, foxes, bats, swans, hawks, kingfishers, spikers, praying mantises, butterflies, and more. The first of its kind, this book describes the lives of 135 common urban mammals, birds, and invertebrates of North America. Learn how these animals have adapted to survive and thrive alongside humans in our cities and suburbs.
