It was worth the wait for our eagle visitors. One highlight was identification of a fourth year female from Bridgewater, Connecticut. It looks like she has a mature mate, but I am not counting on viable young this year. Our other guests were within spitting distance.
Our visitors arrived early this week. Twenty eagles fished at Indian Point on Wednesday. Eagles were perched north side of George’s Island. Flyovers at Charles Point and ice fishing on the Hudson. Warm weather is coming, so they will be going.
Given the warm winter, our migrants stayed put. Our locals did their usual flying and fishing. Right now our pairs are getting ready to settle down until spring.
