General Outdoors: An Eagle in Cornwall Bay

January 25, 2007

The bald eagle population in New York State this winter is the smallest in ten years, according to naturalist Tom Lake, who led the 29th Annual Mid-Winter Bald Eagle Census earlier this month.

In his Hudson River Almanac, Lake attributes the low number of birds to the relatively warm, storm-free weather experienced the first month of winter. The eagles, he wrote in his newsletter, are staying in Canada and northern New England.

Lake did spot five eagles along the Hudson on census day, the last one on Cornwall Bay. He saw:

“A single adult bald eagle was tucked back in the wooded hillside of Sloop Hill. From its day perch on the horizontal limb of a red oak, it had a good field of vision of Cornwall Bay where the tide was low and the prospects for a meal nearly unlimited.“
