Eagles at Copake Lake

​If you spend time at Copake Lake, you will surely at some point notice the eagles circling overhead and diving in for food. Maybe you've been lucky enough to see them teaching their young to fish. Eaglets learn to fly when they are two months old. Most can leave the nest to hunt and fish when they are 4-6 months old. Adult eagles mate for life.

Although we don't know exactly where in the vicinity of Copake Lake they nest, these majestic creatures are seen on almost a daily basis by those who live on or near the Lake.
