About the author (2006)

Naturalists MARGARET MITTELBACH and MICHAEL CREWDSON have joined forces on numerous articles for the New York Times and other publications, employing their dry wit and off-kilter sensibilities to reveal nature in the strangest places. Their previous book, Wild New York, uncovered the city's unsung wonders. They give frequent talks and lectures, and live in Brooklyn.
