Spotters will help locate birds
Bald eagles make their way from Northern Canada and New England south to the Hudson Valley during the winter to hunt food in the unfrozen waterways. While once an endangered species, populations have rebounded due to careful conservation efforts.
On Saturday, Feb. 11, Boscobel will host Teatown Lake Reservation’s annual EagleFest from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. on its grounds overlooking the Hudson River. Constitution Marsh Audubon Center and Putnam Highlands Audubon Society eagle spotters will be available with scopes to help visitors.
In the event of snow, the festival will be held on Feb. 12. For a schedule of other EagleFest activities taking place in Croton, visit teatown.org.
