The Woodpeckers of New York City

10,000 Birds

Disbelief probably seems like the proper response to the idea that there are woodpeckers in New York City. But Gotham’s many parks have some very suitable habitat for birds from the family Picidae and a birder in any borough of New York will generally find at least a couple of species during an average morning’s birding. Only six regularly appear in the city, however, and only four are year-round residents.

New York City’s First Eurasian Collared-Dove

10,000 Birds

But for some poorly (or not-at-all) understood reason, its spread across North America has shown a very northwesterly orientation, so while birders as far away from the epicenter of the North American introduction in Florida as British Columbia get to see Eurasian Collared-Doves regularly we New Yorkers and other northeasterners are deprived. In fact, in New York State, other than a small breeding colony west of Rochester, there are very few records of Eurasian Collared-Dove.

Green roofs could prevent sewage overflow in New York City

Green (Living) Review

New York City’s sewage systems are old and can’t handle large amounts of snowmelt or stormwater. When large quantities of water flow into the combined sewer overflow systems, which make up 60 to 70 percent of the city’s sewers, they tend to spill over into New York City’s rivers. It doesn’t help that the city is about 72 percent impervious, so water goes straight into drainage systems.
