  • New York

    I've been living in New York City since February 2012. I love the city but not for its mammal watching. That said, there are Grey Squirrels in Central Park and if you want to risk the place at night then Skunks, Opossums and Raccoons are reputedly common. In fact I saw a Raccoon at 6 p.m. in May 2011. But you could also drink Margaritas and eat in any of 10,000 restaurants so why bother?

  • Oregon

    In July 2013 I flew to Portland, Oregon, and spent a few days driving down to LA. One of my targets was the Siskiyou Chipmunk, which has a pretty limited range on the California/Oregon border, so I spent a night at Oregon Caves National Monument after a tip from squirrel guru John Koprowski

  • Rhode Island

    In early May 2016 I was sent a picture of a Rhode Island rodent, which turned out to be a Southern Bog Lemming. A species I hadn't seen: apparently, there were heaps of them running around Trustom Pond National Wildlife Refuge. So a couple of weeks later I took a look for myself. I was very glad I did.

  • South Dakota

    I have been to South Dakota in 1993 but don't remember what species I saw in the spectacular Badlands National Park. At Wind Cave National Park I saw Bison and Black-tailed Prarie Dogs among other things.

  • Tennessee

    In April 2012 John Fox and I headed down to Tennessee for the Easter weekend to meet up with Vladimir Dinets who was living in Knoxville and had kindly offered to show us around. Tennessee is only a long day's drive from New York City but it felt like a different continent. Tennessee may well hold the twin records for the world's most friendly and fattest citizens. And if a billboard wasn't advertising that Jesus had died for our sins, it was most probably announcing that there was a Taco Bell at the next exit.

  • Texas

    Texas has some rugged country and visiting Big Bend National Park in 1998 was a long cherished ambition, as was seeing an Armadillo. I saw plenty of roadkill Armadillos - several clutching empty bottles of Lone Star beer - but couldn't find a live one. I returned again in May 2013, for a batting weekend in Big Bend, and was back in May 2014 in the Gulf Coast and San Angelo.

  • Utah

    In August 2010 I visited Bryce National Park, primarily to see Utah Pratrie Dogs. They were easy to spot. There is a Prairie Dog town a mile or two after the entrance gate, and it is clearly signposted as such.

  • Virginia & Washington D.C.

    I haven't spent much time in Virginia, but I have been to DC a few times: until 2010 I didn't spot any mammals other than Grey Squirrels though. Unless you count the unusually smarmy DC waiters who maybe are a different species to the rest of us ...
