Boating With Bald Eagles

The typical Delaware River float trip offers the opportunity to spy more bald eagles than people.

by: Jonathan Dorn

PAGE 1 2

Getting There: For a relaxed, 3-day float, put in at Dingman's Ferry (8 miles south of Milford on PA 209) and take out at Kittatiny Point Visitor Center, where I-80 crosses the Delaware (100 miles north of Philadelphia).

Prime Time: December through March is best for spotting eagles. Contact the Water Gap for the location of current wintering sites.

Guides: Seasonal Guide to the Natural Year: A Month by Month Guide to Natural Events (mid-Atlantic states), by Scott Weidensaul (Fulcrum Publishing, 800-992-2908; $16.95).

Contact: Delaware Water Gap National Recreation Area, (570) 588-2451; www.nps.gov/dewa.
