Eagle, Bird and Animal Watching
We are located in the heart of one of the largest bald eagle wintering areas in the Northeast U.S. Ideal time is the winter for viewing eagles that can be seen frequently here at the Tree Farm. Along the river and from mountain top trails we are having frequent eagle sightings. Birdwatchers return regularly in early May before the leaves become completely leafed out for the migratory spring birds and ducks. Avid bird watcher that visit seasonally report lists of birds viewed and state that with the varied and undisturbed habitat it provides some of the best birding in Pennsylvania.
