Today's commute was a little more interesting than usual. Just before we pulled into Penn Station, a small, terrified bat appeared in our car, flitting back and forth.
The bat repeatedly flew up and down the length of the car, causing startled commuters to duck. The bat -- which appeared to be more freaked out than the commuters -- vanished just before the train pulled up to the platform.

On my train, I often see egrets, ducks or Canadian geese in the waters of the Meadowlands between Newark and Weehawken, N.J.
This evening, I saw what I'm pretty sure was a rat swimming in a (probably) polluted bit of water near the tracks.
I was initially surprised, then realized it was more surprising that I had not spotted a rat in the 2 years and three months I've been riding the rails from New Providence, NJ, to New York.
