There have been several sightings of Hudsonian Godwits at DeKorte Park since Saturday. This bird is very rare for the area. Writes Chris Takacs: Three Hudsonian Godwits were found Saturday morning by a Montclair State University group and identified by Bruce McWhorter.
The birds were seen Saturday and Sunday from the Marsh Discovery Trail and the Shore Walk. These birds brought dozens of birders in yesterday and even more Sunday morning to see them. Longtime Bergen County birder Rob Fanning listed this bird among his most wanted for Bergen County. He had not seen it in 20 years of birding the county.
