Eagle Viewing Sites

Saturday, February 5 @ 9:00 am - 4:00 pm

Bring your binoculars and join us for a chance to see bald eagles as they fly and hunt by the Hudson River.

This is an outdoor activity. Please bring your own binoculars or viewing equipment, as none will be provided. Remember to dress for the weather. The viewing site is free to attend, but donations are appreciated.

Masks not required but strongly recommended. Please follow physical distancing rules.

George’s Island – Montrose

Sponsored by Saw Mill River Audubon

With the cold weather and ice forming on the river, the wide expanse of the Hudson at George’s Island is a great place to view eagles as they fly, and sometimes ride the ice up and down the river!  The trees on the wooded hills provide shelter for eagles coming in to rest.  Saw Mill River Audubon volunteers will be on hand to locate and identify eagles and waterfowl at this eagle-popular site!

Directions:

Take Route 9 North to the Montrose exit. Then, take a left onto Route 9A North, followed by another left onto Dutch Street. Follow Dutch Street to the end.

Echo Canoe Launch – Croton

The waters of the East Branch of the Croton River meet the tidal waters of the Hudson River at the Echo Boat Launch making it an ideal viewing area for spotting bald eagles on the hunt for fish and waterfowl.  Join Teatown and Saw Mill River Audubon to search for eagles and other birds as the tide changes.

Directions from the South:

Take Route 9 North to the Croton-Harmon exit and turn left. Take another left into train station and drive to the end of the parking lot to the boat ramp.

Directions from the North:

Take Route 9 South to the Croton-Harmon exit and turn right. Take a quick left into train station and drive to the end of the parking lot to the boat ramp.
