The Southwest Corridor Park, which runs right past our place in Boston, is the place of many an unexpected evening confrontation with wildlife. Usually it’s just a few squirrels or birds, but earlier this year I came upon a skunk on his/her nocturnal wanderings, and last weekend we found this bunny enjoying a midnight snack. Coupled with the fauna of the Boston Public Garden (geese, ducks, swans, and all their plentiful offspring), I see just as many animals in Boston as I do in upstate New York. They’re also much friendlier, and less skittish. City living makes social creatures of us all.
