Resources: The Cornell Lab of Ornithology

" "I have previously confessed that my birding skills – if that’s not too strong a word – fall far short of the standard set by Jim Wright and the sophisticated visitors to this blog and the great birding sites of the NJ Meadowlands.

But I’m working on it, and I’m guessing there may be a few beginners out there who are working on it too. I urge all such compatriots to visit the Cornell Lab of Ornithology’s website, All About Birds. It is chock full of beautifully-presented information on everything from the birding basics to the latest scientific research.

The Cornell Lab is a unit of Cornell University. Founded in 1915, the lab is a nonprofit organization supported by 78,000 friends and members. It is considered a world leader in the study, appreciation, and conservation of birds.

Colorforms! Beloved pastime of my youth. Who knew they were originally created by artists in River Edge? Now they may be coming back. Wouldn’t it be great to see a Meadowlands set – marsh background with sticky vinyl birds, turtles, airplanes and butterflies!
I may have to contact the new owners…maybe it could be an entire habitat series…

I’ve always said the best things come from NJ.
