The Eagle Feasible starts at Turkey Point Road, Dividing Creek, NJ each year and these images are from February 2005.
Site Description: Turkey Point is an example of a pristine salt marsh, stretching five miles toward Egg Island Point and the Delaware Bay. The wooded hummocks and forest edges supply raptors with multiple perches from which to scan the marsh for prey. Thousands of Snow Geese feed and roost in the marsh in winter and the din they raise is something to be heard. In the spring, the upland edges along Turkey Point Rd. are alive with migrating warblers while the marsh teems with wading birds and shorebirds like rails, Willet, Greater and Lesser Yellowlegs, and Glossy Ibis. Turkey Point was the site of the DEP, Division of Fish and Wildlife’s very successful Bald Eagle hacking project. Thus, Bald Eagles are easy to spot here year round and several pairs nest in this area. Turkey Point also has a large population of breeding Great Horned Owls.
