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."http://www.nj.com/hudson/index.ssf/20 ... r.html#incart_2box_hudson
