I keep posting More Eagles. Well, there’s a reason. There are more eagles.
Our visiting eagles arrived on Friday, February 10, 2017, just in time for the Teatown Lake Reservation Hudson River EagleFest. There were quite a few at Verplanck. At least we had one hanging around at the Croton Train Station Boat Ramp. Here are a few from Friday.
The eagles are arriving. The ice is forming on the Hudson. We had the first of our SteamBoat Dock Photo Club meetings today, LOL!! Photo Corner is ready and waiting in Verplanck. The White House Tree is hosting fish hors d’oeuvres.
A picture is worth a thousand very cold words. Yes, the eagles are still here. It’s too cold and icy where many of them live.

Thankfully, I went out yesterday on my rounds. George’s Island eagles did appear just as I drove up. They knew I needed to fill in aContinue reading “Snow Business”
Plus, we have a few other visitors in the area. The goldeneyes seem to be here in abundance. We also have a loon. A crow decided to harass a young merlin. The merlin won.
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 youngContinue reading “Eagles Everywhere”
