First, on a Losen Slote Park walk in Little Ferry earlier this month, we found a very mysterious, hard-to-explain birdie in the meadow (pictured at right).
The very next weekend — exactly one week later — while viewing the Bald Eagle Nest from nearby Ridgefield on our annual Mother's Day Walk, we found a related species.
By the observation area was the racquet pictured at left, which we believe is from either a miniature motmot
or part of a miniature tennis set.
Put the two photos together and… the game is afoot.
The point is simple: Just never know what you'll find in the Meadowlands, or what the next tide will bring in.
