I've used many field guides in my life, and I can state unequivocally that Julie Feinstein's "Field Guide to Urban Wildlife" is the most helpful and interesting that I have encountered! The photographs are beautiful, many of them striking, many intriguing. The descriptions and explanations are straightforward and informative. There are fascinating stories, anecdotes and facts; there is more than enough relevant material for both the scientifically curious and the casual browser. The author transmits a very apparent affection and respect for the animals she describes. This is a work of scholarship that the lay reader and the biologist can enjoy. I have used it numerous times to identify and learn about species of wildlife in my city.

At last there is a book that has been written about urban wildlife that is not only educational but extremely entertaining. It was hard to put down. My husband and I live in a wooded area and are fascinated, and sometimes saddened, by how wildlife has been forced to adapt to survive. This book explains it all! I plan on purchasing this book as a gift for some fellow animal lovers.

This book is so much fun! It's so engaging. It's charming. Easy to read, too. Of course, I knew what pigeons, starlings, squirrels, raccoons, possums, spiders, daddy-long-legs, fireflies and such are, but I had no idea that they were so interesting. And there are so many other animals, insects and spiders and things I had always seen but never thought about. I learned so much about them.

It's the first of its kind as far as I know and well worth reading and keeping around to refer to.

I've bought several for gifts (for young and old) and I can't wait for Christmas!

"Field Guide to Urban Wildlife" by Julie Feinstein is an informative, entertaining, and delightful read. I learned many things about our urban wildlife companions that I never knew before. Such as: The Peregrine Falcon is the fastest bird in the world and can dive at speeds of up to 200 mph! Such as: Barn Owls can turn their heads 180 degrees, just like the girl in "The Exorcist." One of the best things about this book is that it's not written in the style of a dry doctor's thesis, but instead is written in a lively manner which makes it fun to read. Also, the book is filled with color pictures of the urban creatures Ms. Feinstein is describing. Among them is a Red-Tailed Hawk who decided to nest on a windowsill of the famed American Museum of Natural History, in New York, where Ms. Feinstein works. It must have been there as a way of saying "Thanks, Julie."
