Each winter between January and March, bald eagles from Canada and
northern New England fly south to the Croton and Hudson rivers to
feed on prey found in unfrozen rivers and reservoirs. Join us for
Teatown's annual event celebarating our national symbol's winter
return to the lower Hudson River! The multi-sited event will be
enriched by our collaboration with area Audubon chapters, the Eagle
Institute, NYS DEC, and local environmental organizations who will
help present an exciting and educational day. Live bird
demonstrations (eagles, hawks and owls) and educational programs at
Teatown, warming tents with bird experts with scopes at sites along
the river, area nature centers opening for the day.

Migratory birds are on the move, as they begin to wing their way
to northern breeding grounds. How many will stop to refuel or
stay to nest on your golf course? Find out and contribute to
Audubon International's official count during this year's North
American Birdwatching Open. During the 24-hour event, members of the
Audubon Cooperative Sanctuary and Audubon Signature Programs record
as many different bird species on their properties as they can to
provide a snapshot of bird activity at the height of bird migration.
Participants hail from golf courses, schools, and backyards
throughout the U.S. and Canada. Audubon International encourages
members to play an active role in conserving habitat for birds and
protecting overall environmental quality. The event has been held
yearly since 1998 and results are compiled by Audubon International.
We are excited to announce a change in the event this year to
encourage wider participation. We will once again hold the
"official" Birdwatching Open on International Migratory Bird Day,
Saturday, May 13, 2006. But in response to requests to better
reflect migration in the South and in Canada, we are also offering
additional Birdwatching Open dates on the second Saturday of the
month from March through May. Check the schedule on our website.
