They have arrived! There are many, many eagle sightings along the Hudson River between Croton and Peekskill. The eagles are now ice fishing. Today we counted 15 eagles on the ice between Fleischmann’s Pier (China Pier) and Peekskill’s Riverfront Park. Five eagles were perched and flying over the Croton Point Nature Center. Two young…
Brrrrr … irds!
We are in a deep freeze here. Lots of pictures were taken from the warmth of my car. Others were taken out in the freezing cold or muddy field. Not a bird, but this one has prey:

And every single eagle caught a fish while we were there. Plus, all the other fish eating birds caught a fish. All…
Eagles at Conowingo Dam
I made the pilgrimage with a few close photo friends. When you make a four hour drive one way together, you know you are close friends. It is just before the time when hoards of eagles descend on their Mecca. The locals entertained us. Just be careful where you park your car if you go.
