Ricky's Metropolis

Watching Wildlife in the City

By Judith L. Li; Illustrated by M. L. Herring
Oregon State University Press
It’s early fall when Ricky and Ellie travel from their homes in the Cascade Mountains to Portland. Much to their surprise, they find an astounding variety of wildlife during their weekend school exchange. With the help of their new buddies, Jenny and Marcus, the kids explore the city’s habitats, from its streets and gardens, to woodlands, streams, and river banks. Ellie tests her bird-watching skills while Ricky learns ways to sample fish in streams.
