SECAUCUS: Schmidt’s Woods



A lot of warblers are heading south again, and Schmidt’s Woods in Secaucus is a good Img_0562_2 place to see them.
   Last week, just beyond the park’s parking lot, we saw a black-and-white warbler (below) and a redstart high in a tree (right).
   Img_0554 The park is on the small side, but the woods provide a great rest stop for the warblers.
   The trails are nice and wide, with  an exercise circuit along the way.
   In years past, yellow-crowned night herons, a threatened species, have nested there.
   All in all, a nice oasis for birds and humans alike.
