Jim Wright, who keeps this blog for the 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. More info and driving directions follow.
