Eagle Watching

Stroudsburg/East Stroudsburg   Eagle Watching

Ever spot an American bald eagle?

Bald eagle watching is a very popular winter activity in the Pocono Mountains. December through March, the Upper Delaware Scenic and Recreational River and the Lackawaxen River are special spots for sightings whenever the waters are not frozen. The eagles migrate south from Maine and parts of Canada to reach open waters in which to feed. The Pocono Mountains provides an ideal habitat with clean water and undisturbed land with lots of food and large trees in which to roost, perch and nest.

The Perfect Partnership for Eagles

The Eagle Institute, the Upper Delaware River Watershed's premier organization for the protection of eagles and the stewardship of their habitat, and the Delaware Highlands Conservancy, the region's foremost organization for the protection of healthy lands and waters, came together in 2012 in a partnership that will lead to the continued resurgence of the eagle in the Upper Delaware River region. 

Eagles, like people, need healthy lands and clean waters to thrive. The rivers and forests along the upper Delaware and Lackawaxen Rivers are excellent eagle habitat. The Delaware Highlands Conservancy will continue to host guided Eagle Watch bus tours and provide eagle education about the eagle and where and how it lives, engaging thousands of residents and visitors with our iconic national bird and the beautiful forests and rivers that are home to it.

The Eagle Institute and the Delaware Highlands Conservancy together with the National Park Service, which provides the Winter Field Office at the Upper Delaware Scenic and Recreational River with its excellent location near the historic Roebling Bridge and Zane Grey Museum, share a conservation vision focused on protecting healthy lands and clean waters upon which eagles and people depend. Because of their success in protecting the eagle and its habitat in the Poconos, thousands of visitors and residents can enjoy the experience of watching an eagle in flight along sparkling, forest-lined rivers.
