One afternoon, about 4 o'clock, in February, I was walking my dog at the entrance by the United Water treatment plant. There was still much thawing winter ice on the water. I looked out towards the Kinderkamack side when I saw what I thought was a flock of geese. I stopped at the fence and upon further gazing realized they were not geese, but rather immature bald eagles. I walked up a little further and I met a man with a scope. He affirmed what I was seeing. Together we counted 20 immatures. It could only be described as an eagle social so that immatures could meet and possibly initate the pairing up of a relationship. I kept hoping that I would see this magnificent sight this year, but no luck. It will forever be treasured in my memory. M Geisst, Oradell
