Richard W. DeKorte park is one of New Jersey's premier birding locations. With over 285 species recorded, it's no wonder bird watchers and photographers flock to this location year after year.

Summer is one of the most active times here in the Meadowlands, with Shorebirds, Wading birds and songbirds galore. Barn Swallows can be seen cutting through swarms of midge flies along the Transco trail, while egrets and herons stalk the marsh edges. Look to the air to see Forster's and Least Terns moving about the park. Osprey are also known to soar overhead, hunting the Saw Mill Creek Mudflats. If you're lucky, you may even get a glimpse of a Bald Eagle.

"DeKorte Park features 3.5 miles of walking paths, panoramic views of wetlands and waterways, and birds galore, all framed by the New York City skyline. The park, which was once slated to be a landfill, is the focal point of NJSEA activities. Birders and nature lovers frequent its trails and educators from the park’s Science Center lead hands-on environmental education classes for school groups." ~ From the NJSEA Website
