A check of the park on Wednesday found two ravens, a Northern Harrier, two Redtails and an accipiter (right).
Great Blue Heron was hunkered down by the waterline across the river, Hooded Mergansers were close by.
Dress for the weather — it can be quite cold along the Hackensack River in mid-January. Don't worry, though — we won't be climbing any hills!
