Letter: Bald Eagle Returns to Shores of Peninsula

I have no idea if this has anything to do with the reclamation project at Mill Pond or Shields creek, but I am happy to report that, on Oct. 25, I sighted a mature bald eagle circling over the shoreline of Manhasset Bay, near Mill Pond. It was clearly a bald eagle and not an osprey since I see osprey quite frequently around Port, both over Manhasset Bay and Roslyn Harbor. While I believed it improbable that I would ever see a bald eagle over such a densely populated area as Port Washington, the NY State Department of Conservation (DEC) has reported a significant increase in the number of bald eagles in southern New York over the last five years. So, Porties, keep your eyes out for our national bird and if you see one, please report it to the NY DEC.
