An Eagle In Verona

Eagle-Hathaway1Verona sits along the Atlantic flyway, so we see many interesting birds here all year long. But none are as rare, or majestic as the bald eagle that landed on Hathaway Lane yesterday.

Eagle-Hathaway2Hathaway residents took to the street to gape at the bird, which may have been taking a break from fishing for dinner in Verona Park Lake nearby.

Eagle-Hathaway4Vincent Russo, who lives on Hathaway, got out his camera and shot several dozen photos, some of which he shared with MyVeronaNJ.com.

Eagle-Hathaway5After decades of decline due to pesticides in their food chain, bald eagles have been making a comeback. But some conservationists are concerned that they face a new threat from a Department of the Interior decision to let wind power companies get permits for eagles killed by their machines. The National Audubon Society has a petition now to reverse the decision and you can sign it here.

  1. My son spotted a giant bird this afternoon waiting for pre-school. He said that is was an eagle but I replied it must be a really big hawk! It was big and beautiful (I was not wearing my glasses to see clear enough). Is it possible the eagle is back!?
