WATCH THE SKIES — Wintering eagles arrive in December with concentrations peaking in January and February, according to the state Department of Environmental Conservation. Four of the best viewing spots are Constitution Island from the North Dock at West Point, the Route 6/202 overlook above Iona Island State Park and Riverfront Park and Charles Point/China Pier in Peekskill. The birds are most active between 7 and 9 a.m. and 4 and 5 p.m. (DEC)
