Jim O'Neill, the environmental writer for The Record, had a neat story over the weekend about the growing presence of Peregrine Falcons on bridges along the Hackensack River as far north as Little Ferry.
The story, picked up by The Associated Press, Star Ledger and Philadelphia Inquirer, was also mentioned on NPR. Link is here.
Recently, we took the photo above of a Peregrine Falcon youngster (right) ready to fledge under the Route 3 bridge.
We believe this is the first successful fledging of a Peregrine Falcon in the Meadowlands north of Jersey City.
