How did the wildlife survive the storm?

Many readers have written to ask how Central Park's various critters survived last Tuesday's storm. Here's at least one happy answer: On 8/20/09, two days after the storm, Bruce Yolton wrote on his blog [see above for link]:

Tonight, we heard both of the North Woods Eastern Screech-Owls loud and clear. The female called loudly and the male answered. It was great to have confirmation that they had both survived the storm.
