Hudson River Ice

Yes, there is ice on the Hudson.  We have waited for over a year.  The eagles are everywhere.  I only made a few stops today.  There were 3 eagles in Croton Point Park, 3 at Furnace Dock, 5 in Verplanck, 5 on the ice off the pier at Fleishmann’s.

I think this is a first year bird, but you can see a lot of white because the bird is soaked

And ’tis the month of love and nest rebuilding.  Our own pale male is setting up the nest for his mate.

  1. Thank you for posting these pictures of birds enjoying the ice. maybe that is because they don’t have to drive on it.
