Film Screening Sunday of “Wildlife of Liberty State Park”

Jersey City resident John Dunstan will host a free screening of his latest nature film, “Wildlife of Liberty State Park,” at the park this Sunday, June 4, at 2:30 p.m. According to an article in the Jersey Journal, the film spotlights wildlife that inhabits the park beyond the standard geese and butterflies. “In the film, my observations over a period of years are owls, wading birds, insects, black skimmers, woodpeckers and more, all in this tremendous setting,” said Dunstan.

Red-throated Loon Alert


It’s a beautiful day to go birding, and you’ll want to head out to DeKorte: Chris Takacs spotted a Red-throated Loon in the shorebird pool at 7 a.m. this morning. Hopefully he sticks around! It is likely the same Loon seen in early May. It’s been seen recently in Saw Mill Wildlife Management Area and along the Hackensack River.

Reminder: Harrier Walk This Sunday (Note early start time)
