Bald Eagles at Black Rock Park on January 26, 2014.

In addition to the guy shown above, we saw about 19 more eagles today. Three juvenile birds were flying around near Black Rock Park. Seven were spotted from the Croton River Kayak launch area near the Croton train station, some sitting on frozen ice spots on the river. And 8 more were spotted a short distance away along a section of the OCAT.

On Ground Hog Day 2013 we saw 8 Bald Eagles across the Hudson River from Verplanck. There's a group of 3 in a pine tree, about 1/2 a mile away, so the birds are pretty small in the picture.

We first ebirded Bald Eagles at Chestnut Ridge Hawk Watch on September 23, 2012, though I'm sure we'd seen them before that.

We've also seen them in Montana, Wyoming, New Jersey, Newfoundland and Labrador Canada, Nebraska, Alaska, and closer to home in Westchester where they nest not far from our house.
