This winter’s field trip to view wintering Bald Eagles around the Delaware County rivers and reservoirs is scheduled for Saturday, January 15, 2022. Eagles concentrate around open water in the region to feed, and recent trips have turned up 20+ birds. Other raptors and waterfowl are usually sighted also.
This trip is limited to DOAS members, and pre-registration is required at the DOAS website (form is below and includes the option to join). Memberships will also be available on the day of the trip.
The trip will leave the Dietz St. parking lot across from the YMCA in Oneonta at 7:30 a.m. Participants can also be met en- route in Delhi and Walton. We will be following Covid protocols with ride sharing limited. Return to Oneonta will be mid to late afternoon.
Use the form below to register for this event. If you are not a current member of DOAS, you can join at the same time!
