Eagle Heaven on Hudson

Eagles with fish Croton Jan 2014-3
First grade students’ view of the eagles in Croton.

There have been at least 15 eagles hunting at the Croton Boat Ramp the last two days.  The Croton River started moving again.  Verplanck marinas sported another 15-20 fishing and perching relatively close.   Thursday night’s eagle count from the dock in Verplanck came in at 15.  Just at dusk an immature caught a fish and brought it to the ice south of Stony Point.  11 eagles hoped for a few bites.

Robin at George’s Island. I can’t wait for spring, either. There were berries in the bush below this tree. A large flock of robins was enjoying a meal.
