Star-Ledger's Review of 'Nature of the Meadowlands"

4-Nature of Meadowlands cover smThe Star-Ledger has a wonderful review of "The Nature of the Meadowlands" today by Terry Golway, director of the Kean University Center for History, Politics, and Policy.

A sample: "This book is more than a tribute to the vision of those who saw the Meadowlands as something more than a dump.

"It is testimony to the efforts of staff and volunteers of the New Jersey Meadowlands Commission, the Meadowlands Conservation Trust and other individuals who have devoted their lives to this wonderful reclamation project."

Fell House Barn Turkey Vulture!

Barbara Dilger writes:

"Today (Saturday) I saw the Turkey Vulture on top of the Fell House Barn.

"Stiles says they like to sun themselves, it seemed to be sunning, walking funny, sometime dancing.

"It was very entertaining, then it pooped and flew off toward the Celery Farm. (Darn, I missed the poop shot)."  

(Thanks,  Barbara! There's always next time.)

In Case You Missed It ...

Interesting article in The Star-Ledger about Steve Quinn, who has lived his whole life in Ridgefield  Park (and who was one of the folks quoted in  "The Nature of the Meadowlands"). I wrote a birding column about him a couple years back. The link is here.

Steve recently retired as the main diaramist for the Museum of Natural History in Manhattan.  The link is here.
