About: This 508-acre park, perched on a peninsula on the eastern shore of the Hudson, offers hiking, camping, swimming, cross-country skiing -- and a better-than-average chance of catching sight of one of these magnificent creatures. It's also known to birders as a prime spot to view grassland species like meadowlarks, short-eared owls, and red-tailed hawks. The park also features a nature center that presents public programs, including organized eagle fests. More eagles than ever now live year-round in the Valley; spotting one is usually easiest in winter, when the big birds flock to waterways like the Hudson, whose naturally flowing tributaries offer hard-to-find fresh water.
