Teatown’s 20th Annual Hudson River EagleFest returns to Croton Point Park on Saturday February 3, 2024 for an all day celebration (from 9:00 to 4:00) where visitors can experience America’s majestic emblem, the bald eagle. This popular festival aims to entertain and educate visitors about eagles in the Hudson Valley and the importance of wildlife conservation. Attendees can expect to view eagles, watch live bird shows featuring birds of prey, go on an eagle-spotting walk, check out educational programming and exhibits; there are also crafts and games for children. Most of the activities occur in heated tents and a variety of food trucks will be on hand at the park.

Attending the Teatown Hudson River Eaglefest

Catch a show at the Eaglet Stage, including “Raptors for Rookies,” “Birding Basics” and Don’t Answer the Phone: A Guide to Wildlife Rehabilitation.”

Bird walks start at 9:30, the last bird walk begins 2:30. All walks meet outside the main pavilion. Despite the temperatures, ice, and snow, dozens of bird species call this park home during the winter season, from Northern Cardinals to American Kestrels to Bald Eagles—and beyond! With a bit of luck, you will be able to observe many of them. During this birding trip, you will be walking slowly through a portion of the park, checking out shrubs, trees, water, and the sky. It gets cold and windy at Croton Point Park, and birding is a very slow endeavor, so warm clothes and gloves are a must. Toe warmers are also recommended.
