Forget The Finch!

New Jersey is home to more than just the American Goldfinch, the beautiful golden-chested state bird. Try to spot the distinctive red of a cardinal or the faded blue of a blue jay. Tune into their tweets and chirps as you sit peacefully and enjoy the views. For an even closer look, bring along some binoculars or use a nearby telescope. Specific parks even have special locations designed for birders to practice the hobby.
