In winter the number of Bald Eagles in the lower Hudson Valley increases substantially
as the upper Hudson River freezes and individuals from the northern
population move south in search of open water in which to fish. These magnificent birds never fail to excite and inspire me no matter how often I see them. We will visit several spots along the Hudson River and perhaps the nearby Croton Reservoir to look for Bald Eagles and to learn about the history of Bald Eagles along the Hudson River from their pre-DDT abundance to their DDT-caused near extinction to their present day status in the Hudson Valley. At the end of the day you will more than likely be cold and tired but it will have been well worth it. Approximate trip length is 4 hours. Cost:$30 per person, group size limit: 10 participants.
