Spot Bald Eagles at Boscobel
SPOT BALD EAGLES AT BOSCOBEL
Viewing Site for Teatown Hudson River EagleFest
Saturday, February 9 from 9:00am-4:00pm
FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
(Garrison, NY – January 2019) – Boscobel is honored to be, once again this year, a viewing site for Teatown Hudson River EagleFest.
Each winter, between December and March, bald eagles from Canada, northern New York, and New England fly south to the Hudson Valley. Biologists estimate that approximately 150 bald eagles overwinter in the lower Hudson Valley, which affirms the continued health of this habitat. (In 2007, the bald eagle was removed from the federal list of endangered and threatened species.)
During EagleFest, naturalists from Constitution Marsh Audubon Center and Sanctuary and the Putnam Highlands Audubon Society will be on site at Boscobel with binoculars and scopes to help visitors spot bald eagles as they feed on fish and waterfowl in the Hudson River’s unfrozen waters.
Teatown Hudson River EagleFest is headquartered at Croton Point Park in Westchester County. Tickets to EagleFest in Croton are available at Teatown.org. There is no charge to visit EagleFest at Boscobel, and registration is not necessary.
Saturday, February 9 (Snowdate Sunday, February 10)
Free, no registration required.
Visitors may walk directly from Boscobel’s parking lot to the Belvedere, which is the scenic overlook.
