Sensory Garden, Mushroom Garden

Yesterday we posted a column about the new Sensory Garden, and this photo by Ed Rumain is a timely reminder that the garden can also be a great place to look for mushrooms. (Although it was a tad lean last time we checked.)

If anyone can ID this beauty, photographed by Ed in the garden last month …

Feather Mystery

One recent Friday afternoon, we got word from an NJMC staffer that the remains of a large, dead banded bird were atop a closed North Arlington landfill.

By the time we could investigate the following week, we could find no trace of the bird — just these pale feathers.

Anyone want venture a theory on what kind of bird it was, based on these very light (in more ways than one) feathers?
