During the winter, about an hour north of Manhattan on the Hudson River, you can find Bald Eagles. On Saturday, Teatown’s Hudson River Eaglefest 2009 was held along the river. I drove up with James O'Brien and Ben Cacace and we ended up seeing over sixty eagles! (We might have actually seen more, but we didn't count the eagles we saw on the west side of the river to avoid double counting.)
We birded both sides of the river from Croton-on-Hudson on the east bank, up to George's Island and Bear Mountain and down as far as Haverstraw on the west bank.
