I have been very fortunate over the years to be able to introduce countless people to the incredible diversity of bird species that flourish in the Meadowlands. Many species of this vast array of the Meadowlands avian world, to the disbelief of most participants, are considered threatened or endangered in the State of New Jersey.“
But Don,” as the question usually begin, “if those birds are really endangered how come I see so many of them here?” The simple answer: “It’s the Meadowlands.”
