The northernmost point of the new Onondaga Creekwalk, by Onondaga Lake in Syracuse, was all but deserted Tuesday afternoon. Deserted, as long as you weren’t talking about bald eagles.
To the west, toward the Syracuse Metropolitan Wastewater Treatment Plant, an eagle stood on the ice, near a patch of open water. To the east, another eagle perched in a tree.
And from a wooden beam maybe 100 feet into the water, an adult bald eagle — white head clearly visible — stared at an awestruck visitor.
How spectacular is the view of eagles from that section of the Creekwalk?
