Event Details

This season’s field trip to view wintering Bald Eagles around the Delaware County rivers and reservoirs is scheduled for Saturday, January 13, 2024. The trip explores area rivers and reservoirs where eagles concentrate around open water in the region to feed. Past trips have turned up 20+ birds. Other raptors and waterfowl are usually sighted also. We will stop at a local restaurant for lunch for interested participants.

This year’s trip is once again open to the public, and participants can register using the form below.

The trip is mostly by car, with a small amount of walking on level ground. Conditions may be snowy or icy.

The trip will leave the Dietz St. parking lot across from the YMCA in Oneonta at 8:00 a.m. Participants can also be picked up en-route in Delhi and Walton. Return to Oneonta will be mid to late afternoon. Carpooling is strongly encouraged. Carpoolers: Please be prepared to follow COVID protocols while ride sharing based on driver and passenger preferences.

For further information, contact Andy Mason, (607) 267-8491, AndyMason@earthling.net.
