    Ace birding author Kenn Kaufmann did a special pullout section on birding in the Northeast for the March-April May section of Audubon Magazine.
   In his section on New Jersey, Kaufmann writes:
   "Farther north, another completed trail shines a spotlight on a very different region: the Meadowlands, in northeastern New Jersey. Just a few miles from the heart of New York City, the Meadowlands play host to more than 200 bird species, from great blue herons and bald eagles to colorful little warblers and goldfinches."
