ABSTRACT
The article offers a look at the population of owls in New York City. The authors argue that owls remain a symbol of wise life. They cite the abundance of food and habitat diversity as the key factors that influence the decision of owls to stay in New York City. A description of how owls served as ambassadors of conservation efforts in the city is also presented. In addition, the article discusses the influence of habitat change on the owl population in the city.

    Grand Bahama's pine forests are home to a unique but largely unstudied avifauna. No recent comprehensive survey has been conducted in these forests and little is known about the abundance and distribution of the island's pineland birds. This lack of information hinders efforts to monitor avian...
