Bald Eagle at George’s Island by Tait Johansson

Bedford Audubon collaborates with Saw Mill River Audubon Society to conduct a winter roosting survey of Bald Eagles in the Lower Hudson Important Bird Area.

We share the data with Audubon New York to monitor and advocate for Important Bird Areas, and with the New York State Department of Environmental Conservation to supplement their eagle monitoring efforts and to facilitate decision-making that impacts this Important Bird Area.

Naturalist Tait Johansson oversees 15 volunteer citizen scientists to monitor 4 roosts weekly at dusk in January and February. If you’d like to help, please email Tait Johansson.
