Union County, NJ – This little fellow is an American Woodcock who was probably on his way south for the holidays when he lost his way in Elizabeth. Union County Parks & Community Renewal employee Margaret Heisey spotted him inside the Chris Bollwage Parking Garage and he was safely released into Mattano Park by Union County Vicinage employee and longtime parks volunteer Natalie Gregorio. Union County’s park system provides important habitat for migratory birds along the Atlantic Flyway, a major north-south route.(photo: Natalie Gregorio)
