Marco Lips offered up this Teaser, but didn't supply an answer. (Darn you, Marco!)
Mike Gempp posited that it was one of the big pipes connecting Teal Pool with the Saw Mill Creek Mud Flats/Tidal Impoundment, and we agree.
That said, the other answer — "probably the bottom of his coffee cup" did not sound that far-fetched. Thanks to all who particpated, including Marco.
The Meadowlands Commission's Jim Wright, who keeps this blog, also writes a twice-monthly column for The South Bergenite. Here's his latest, on the upcoming World Series of Birding:
On Saturday, May 12, before sunrise, a team of three intrepid birders will begin scouring Bergen County for as many species of birds as they can find in one day.
The team is the Meadowlands Marsh Hawks, led by N.J. Meadowlands Commission naturalist Mike Newhouse, and their goal is simple: to raise money for a new native-plant garden for birds and butterflies in DeKorte Park.
The Marsh Hawks, named after one of the region’s signature raptors, a.k.a. the northern harrier, are competing in the World Series of Birding, a New Jersey event known around the world.
