All sorts of creatures live next door to us. Pigeons, sparrows, swifts, hedgehogs, rats, squirrels, foxes and wild boar. But in the city you can also come across rose-ringed parakeets, white-tailed eagles, common rough woodlice and grove snails. If you don’t know them yet, read this book about our undomesticated neighbours.
City Animals will tell you why, looking at blocks of flats, a pigeon sees mountain slopes full of rocky shelves, why a rook’s feathers shine in all the colours of the rainbow, why a flock of exotic parrots in the winter in the middle of a European city is not an unusual sight, whether you can drink, eat and sleep as you fly, what makes a sparrow a traveller, and what a domestic house spider can help us with. As well as all this, the book contains information about how to help urban animals and how not to cause them harm. Others by these authors:
