Eagles often seen opposite W.B. Mason on State St., Hamden. You can set
up scope or binocs in their lot, face east and see the roost in the
little grove just beyond the Amtrak line. The eagles know you can't
approach them due to the trains and seem to feel secure there. Mary

> Last winter was spot on due to the severe cold and that the Hudson was frozen from the Bear Mountain Bridge with ice down to the NYC harbor. To have ice down that far hasn't happened in many years. Even super bowl week the coast guard was breaking it up. Eagle Season on the Hudson is hopefully Christmas through early March. At times less than 200-300 feet away fishing and eating on the ice flows. Pretty much quarenteed to see them perching in the trees right out in the open. Great shots with a 200mm lens & up.
