With Peg DiBenedetto (Catskill Center)
Cost: Free to Members, $10 for Non-Members
As recently as just a few years ago, a winter report of a Golden Eagle in the Catskills was thought to be an anomaly - a bird that was in the wrong place at the wrong time.
However, through efforts of the Delaware-Otsego Audubon Society, in conjunction with the Eastern Golden Eagle Project, a population of over-wintering Golden Eagles in New York State was discovered. The size and extent of the population are still being explored — with camera trap photos and telemetry data, the natural history of this “new” species is slowly unfolding.
Peg DiBenedetto will present an overview of eastern Golden Eagles; their local habits and behaviors, and migratory routes, as well as the methods used and experiences she and her husband Michael have had, working with the Eastern Golden Eagle Project.
In case of inclement weather, the workshop will be held on April 21st at 10am. Please check our website for updates.
