Feasting eagles

Volunteers with the Delaware-Otsego Audubon Society (DOAS) use wildlife cameras baited with deer carcasses on high ridges around the Catskills to photograph and count golden eagles passing through the region as they migrate each year.

These shots, from a camera located in the Delaware County town of Andes, were taken in late December 2015 and early January 2016 and show that golden eagles aren't the only animals attracted to food in the winter. The baiting stations regularly attract coyotes, bear, bobcats, crows and bald eagles. 

Thanks to Michael DiBenedetto, one of the DOAS volunteers, for the photographs. For more on the eagle tracking project, click here.
