Eastern Carpenter Bee

Xylocopa virginica

This busy native pollinator does it all. Carpenter bees can be spotted all over the High Line hollowing out nests in fallen logs and pollinating nearly every type of plant in the gardens.

A hardworking bug fit for the young—or young at heart.

Where to spot them on the High Line

A widespread and recognizable species, look for its glossy abdomen as it visits flowers in every section of the park.
