Our visiting Hudsonian Godwits don’t appear to heading anywhere soon. The shorebirds, which winter in southern South America, have been hanging out at DeKorte Park since Saturday, and they’re a wonder to see. Ron Shields sent these pics from earlier today.
DeKorte Park trails will be closed on Monday Oct. 5 and Tuesday Oct. 6 due to nearby construction. NJSEA offices and science center will remain open. Trails will reopen on Wednesday, Oct. 7, at 8 am.
