Stay tuned to this blog next week for the announcement of a big free event slated for early December in DeKorte Park's Meadowlands Environment Center. Really!
NJMC staffer Jim Wright's column in The South Bergenite today is about the gowing problem of released/escaped pet birds:
The Meadowlands Commission’s DeKorte Park is known for drawing all sorts of unusual birds, but the one-square-mile park has been attracting the “wrong” kind of bird of late – exotic pet birds that have either escaped from their owners or have been intentionally released.
Either way, the birds face a likely death sentence in the wild.
