Eagles of the Schoharie Presentation Offered
Fort Hunter, NY – The Friends of Schoharie Crossing State Historic Site will host nationally recognized nature photographer, Bill Combs, Jr. to discuss the “Eagles of the Schoharie” at their monthly meeting on Tuesday, May 23rd at 6:30pm. Combs, Jr. has been deeply involved in the creation of the Schoharie Eagle Trail in Schoharie County, NY.
Combs, Jr. photographs birds and Eagles as well as monitors nesting habits in the region. As a resident of Schoharie County, he has recently joined forces with the Schoharie Economic Enterprise Corp. (SEEC) to develop and launch the Schoharie County Eagle Trail. This trail functions as a way for visitors to discover, learn about and watch the bald eagles that live in the area.
He has been photographing the eagles of Schoharie County since 2005 and his favorite aspect of that work is witnessing interactions between adult eagles and their eaglets; being able to watch them grow.
The presentation will be preceded by a short meeting of the Friends group. It is free and open to the public, though donations to the non-profit will be gratefully accepted. This program will be held inside the Enders House adjacent to the Visitor Center/Museum on Schoharie Street in Fort Hunter.
