"One of the exiting aspects of bird watching is to find a bird that is rare. Two rare birds are occasionally seen in Hudson County. They are the Snowy Owl and the Yellow-crowned Night Heron. In November 2000, three Snowy Owls appeared at Liberty State Park and stayed the entire winter. On March 3, 2009, the author witnessed the flight of the Snowy Owl, again at Liberty State Park."
