Rotary Last Week

 Mr. James (Jim) Beemer a Fish and Wildlife Biologist in Department of Housing and Public Works Natural Resource Office fascinated all present about the Bald Eagle Haliaetus leucocephalus, of the United States and Canada.


The Bald Eagle winters in the West Point area and also Delaware River area.  At West Point your can observe the magnificent bird this time of year during the day from 9:00 am through 3:00 pm from North Dock behind Eisenhower Hall.  You might also view the eagles at night looking south toward the Bear Mountain Bridge at South Island Overlook or the ridge above James I. O’ Neill High School. The eagle’s nest is said to reach 8 ft x 8 ft and could weight about 800 lbs.  The eagles migrate South from Canada as the cold moves North and come the West Point area to enjoy the many species of fish in the Hudson River.  Hope you get to see the eagles as they hover gracefully overhead.


In addition our Club President Michael Moss provided attendee with the proposed slate of new officers.
