Was This Painted in Bergen County?

Screen Shot 2022-11-15 at 9.50.59 AMI have appreciated Gilbert Gaul's paintings ever since seeing one of his works in a museum in Augusta, Ga.

He lived in Ridgefield, N.J., for the last nine years of his life (1910-1919), and painted during some of that time.

I wonder if the painting above was done in our region. (It is currently up for auction. and needs a cleaning, I think.)

I also found this painting that Gaul did of Hackensack, also for sale.

Last Chance to See My Zoom Talk

In case you missed my Zoom talk on the Red-shouldered Hawks of Allendale and would like to view it, here it is.

The expiration date to view the vido is Sunday night. After that, it will only be available to Fyke Nature Associationmembers.

The talk, which runs under 24 minutes, is brought to you by the Fyke Nature Association and the Lee Memorial Library.

It stars 20 years of Red-shouldered Hawks, with a guest appearance or two by Allendale's legendary Stiles Thomas.

If you click the square in the lower right-hand corner of the screen, you can watch the video full-screen.

These endangered, magnificent hawks have made a remarkable recovery in Allendale, and can often be seen in the Celery Farm and elsewhere in town.

This past spring, a pair of adults had four youngthe most in one brood everand all fledged.

Jim's talk covers  Red-shoulders in general and their history in Allendale--dating back to the heyday of Stiles Thomas. With a surprise or two.

Jim, a marsh warden at the Celery Farm,  monitors the nest for the state Department of Environmental Protection. He was able to document the hawk’s most recent nesting season and beyond with some great color photos.
