JERSEY CITY — Tucked away on the southernmost end of Liberty State Park is a 22-acre peninsula covered in reeds and ringed in part by a sandy beach.

It’s a patch of wilderness that makes visitors forget they’re in a densely populated urban jungle. You might spot yellow-crowned night herons there, or horseshoe crabs, or the American Oystercatcher, a chicken-sized bird.

“They all hang around here,” Jersey City birder Rick Cordner said on a recent trip. “This tidal flat is just an amazing habitat for birds. You see the mallards digging in the frozen muck right now for vegetation? It's just an amazing place."
