Successful Bald Eagle Trip

This year’s field trip on Jan. 9 to view wintering Bald Eagles in the upper Delaware River basin brought out over 50 participants who spotted 27 eagles along the East and West Branches of the Delaware and Cannonsville Reservoir in Delaware County.

Waterways and the reservoir were nearly all open, leading to the birds being more dispersed than usual. Other species sighted included Red-tailed Hawks, Belted Kingfisher, Common and Hooded Mergansers, Buffleheads, Black Ducks, Mallards and Canada Geese.

Over half the birders enjoyed a well-deserved lunch at the Old Schoolhouse Restaurant in Downsville after the trip.
