We’re all about the exquisite Cedar Waxwings on this post. Thanks to Mickey Raine for these great photos he took at Mill Creek Marsh in Secaucus on Saturday!
The big news you’ve been waiting for is here: Renowned birding field-guide author David Sibley has been confirmed as the keynote speaker for the Meadowlands Birding Festival on Saturday, Sept. 15, at DeKorte Park in Lyndhurst!
Sibley is the author of the well-known Field Guides to the Birds of Eastern and Western North America. He has also written guides to Bird Life & Behavior, an overall guide to birds, and birding basics.
In its biography of Sibley, the National Audubon Society says:
There are 47 million birdwatchers. But there is only one David Sibley. He knows every North American bird: by its shade, by its tilt, by its habitat, by its male, female, and juvenile plumages. It’s only natural; he’s the son of a Yale ornithologist and has been birding since his childhood in Connecticut. Sibley was only seven when he began drawing birds, filing his illustrations away along with clips about the natural history of each species.
