‘Birds of the Meadowlands’ Talk
Jim 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 as part of the Bergen County Audubon Society’s monthly meeting, which will take place at the Meadowlands Environment Center in DeKorte Park. The talk will feature some unusual and once-endangered birds, along with some nifty color photos that Jim has taken in the Meadowlands in the past three years. Jim will also include photos of other critters he has seen along the river and its marshes — from Diamondback Terrapins to Fiddler Crabs. To rsvp, contact Don Torino of the BCAS at firstname.lastname@example.org or 201-636-4022.
