Great Walk and Talk Today


We had roughly 75 folks on the walk, divided into smaller groups, and including and we saw several excellent birds.


Although water levels were to too high to see the American Bittern, we did see the Orange-crowned Warbler, several Brown Creepers, Ruby-Crowned Kinglets, Black-crown Night Heron and ducks galore.

We will print the full list later in the week — with pix by Jeff Nicol, including the Orange-crown.

Topping off the day was a wonderful talk and signing by "Meadowlands" author Thomas F. Yezerski, with a turnout of approximately 100 book lovers and nature lovers.

If you were unlucky enough to miss the show, you can still see Tom's original illustrations for the book, on display through March in the Environment Center's Flyway Gallery. Not to be missed.
