Brian Anderson of The South Bergenite has a neat story on the recent Bald Eagle sightings in the Meadowlands in the editions published today.
Here are the first two paragraphs:
Of all the birds of North America, the American Bald Eagle is a bird that carries with it a mystique for many Americans. Its white head, yellow beak and never-back-down stare inspire pride in the hearts of many.
For local residents, catching a glimpse of this noble bird won't require a vacation to Cape Canaveral, FL, or Alaska—a quick car ride to the Meadowlands and a bit of luck might be enough to see a bald eagle in the wild.

We have to confess that Tuesday's teaser was a bit goofy — about a lone duck on some floating ice in Teal Pool.
We asked readers to submit their own captions to supplement our suggestions — "Cold Duck" and "Go with the floe."
Here are readers' captions:
said: "How big is this iceberg? Things are quite ducky out here."
said: "This is still a lot cleaner and quieter than the Seal Pool."
said: "Duck Enough NOT to FLY."
said: Female Canvasback in "ice-olation."
said: "I'll take a Canvasback please–but hold the ice…"
said: "I was going with 'I feel the earth – move – under my feet…' for this female canvasback. And she was in the Teal Pool? Going against type…"
said: "Hmmm, wondering if this ice will quack?"
Thanks to all. It's clearly been a long winter.
