Eagle Fest Update!







February 11th was a perfect day.  Two days after a major snowstorm, Boscobel plowed the paths and set up a fire pit to warm viewers.  The view was ethereal. The Hudson River in the early morning was the sun's mirror and mist continued to rise throughout the morning.  As the day progressed, more viewers arrived, not knowing whether to spot bald eagles or just admire the view.  Nine adult and for juvenile eagles were spotted.  267 attendees were counted (adults and juveniles).  One snowman and one snow eagle were built. 
Also spotted and spotting were Board members Perry Pitt, Mark Hall, Pete Salmansohn, Ellen  Varela-Burstein along with Constitution Marsh Audubon Center and Wildlife Sanctuary's Director, Eric Lind and four of his staff.  Even our hearts were soaring!
