This and That

It is time to post a few recent photos.  The raptors always come first.  Then it is for the little guys.

More Eagles Plus

Two of the three birds below were banded in Connecticut, 2016 and 217.  We now have three CT eagles that have recently investigated the Hudson River.  All the other photos show resident eagles and resident red-shouldered hawk.

If you come to visit, please careful where you park.

How to Catch an Eagle

Bring in some wind, snow, low tide, lots of fish and extremely cold weather.  The eagles have moved to the Hudson River in big numbers now.  This is just in time for Teatown Lake Reservation’s Hudson River EagleFest.
