River Updates



RiverQuest is home!! Back to Haddam. It was a great winter season down in Essex partnering with the Connecticut River Museum, but, it always feels nice to go HOME! If anyone missed the Winter Wildlife Eagle Cruises (or just wants to come agian for a great cruise on the river), come aboard for an Osprey/Eagle Cruise. We will be seeing an eagle or two, probably more (We saw 8 on our return to Haddam) along with our local Ospreys who will be returning from their winter southern homes. This cruise will go down into Essex Harbor and through the area we call "Eagle Alley". On the cruise back to Haddam on March 21, we saw Common and Hooded Merganser, Ring Necked Duck, Red Tailed Hawk, Northern Harrier, Canada Geese, Mute Swan, Great and Double Crested Cormorant, Red Throated Loon. Still many wintering visitors around. Come aborad for anothehr
