RIDGEFIELD PARK — Al and Alice's story is like something out of the Springsteen canon: Two star-crossed lovers overcome the odds and make good, settling down and starting a family somewhere in the swamps of Jersey.

The pair of American bald eagles have made their home in a tall cluster of cottonwood trees overlooking Overpeck Creek in the Meadowlands. It's a great location, even in often expensive Bergen County — right on the water, easy access to Route 46 and the New Jersey Turnpike.

The only problem is that their tree sits on a state-designated toxic waste site that will soon be cleaned up and turned into a large-scale development. Fierce predators they may be, it turns out bald eagles don't know the first thing about real estate.
