‘Birds of the Meadowlands’ Slide Show and Talk

IMG_1718Jim Wright, who keeps this blog for the New Jersey Meadowlands Commission, will present a free talk and slide show on the birds of the Meadowlands on Tuesday, March 1, at the Hackensack River Canoe and kayak Club.

The talk will feature some once endangered birds and some nifty color photos that Jim has taken in the Meadowlands in the past 2.5 years. The emphasis will be on birds that can be seen on the river.

Jim will also include photos of other critters he has seen along the river and its marshes  — from Diamondback Terrapins to Fiddler Crabs.

The meeting begins at 7 p.m. at the Elks Club in Paramus, with Jim's talk to begin around 7:30 p.m.

The group's website is here.

The Paramus Elks Club is located behind Raymour & Flanagan at 200 Rt. 17 North in Paramus, one mile north of Rt. 4; a half mile north of Century Road. It is immediately past Paramus Chevrolet Auto Mall.

    “… Birds that can be seen on the river?” Hope you got a shot of last summer’s Whimbrel. And I don’t think anyone got a shot of the American Bittern we saw out with Gaby last September … 😉
