Don't forget: Prize-winning nature author Scott Weidensaul is giving a free talk, “Against All Odds – Miracles of Bird Migration,” at 7:30 p.m. tonight in DeKorte Park, Lyndhurst.
Directions to DeKorte are in the lefthand column of this blog.
The talk, hosted by N.J. MC and sponsored by the Bergen County Audubon Society, will take place in the Meadowlands Environment Center auditorium.
Weidensaul is the author of more than two dozen books on natural history, including the Pulitzer Prize finalist, “Living on the Wind,” about bird migration.
His talk will explore the wonder and mechanics of migration, and the simple ways that humans can help at a time when the populations of many migratory birds are in drastic decline.

Mr. Weidensaul gave a fascinating and wonderful talk. Thank you, Mr. Weidensaul, NJMC, and BCAS!
Scott’s talk was awesome. I was glad to see I was already doing a lot of the things he suggested to help the birds – bird-friendly native plants in the yard (which is a certified Wildlife Habitat by the National Wildlife Federation), never use pesticides or chemicals in my yard, buy organic as much as possible. I confess I never looked for toilet paper made from recycled paper however! LOL. And I’ve tried to buy Fair Trade coffee, but never looked for shade-grown. So many things to consider.
