Dennis Cheeseman photographed this Semipalmated Plover by the Marsh Discovery Trail, on the left before the first bird blind. Dennis adds:
"The Orioles are back, off the parking lot." (Thanks, Dennis!)
We are happy to announce that we have streamlined our standard liability release forms for our walks. You will now be able to sign one release that will cover you for all our walks in 2011. (Note: Just bring the release with you on the next free guided walk.)

To help migrating birds (and non-migratory birders), the Meadowlands Commission has lowered the Shorebird Pool at DeKorte Park for the following week.
When water levels were lowered earlier this spring, we drew Soras, Virginia Rail, Common Moorhens, a Red-necked Phalarope and more.
The extended mud flats might bring some more nifty birds, so be on the look out — and report (and photograph) any good sightings to Jim Wright here.
Thomas Yezerski's acclaimed new children's book 'Meadowlands' is now on sale in the Environment Center at DeKorte Park for a great price — $14.95.
Tom will be here on Tuesday, May 24, at 7 p.m. and Saturday, June 25, at 10:30 a.m. to talk about the book, show some of its amaziing illustrations, and autograph copies.
The book is now available at the Environment Center's Tidelands Gift Shop.
