Eagles Galore! Plus a Few Other Regulars

As soon as the crushing ice formed on the Hudson River and the rivers to the north, east, west and south, our migrant eagles joined us at the Croton Point Nature Center.   Eagle watchers reported up to 44 eagles on the river.

The prey this one had was pinkish. Couldn’t tell if it was a fish or something else.
