River Updates



Osprey babies are hatching! We are quite certain one on the East Haddam Swinge Bridge did yesterday (05-18). We saw the parents flying around together looking HAPPY! A good sign. We will still occasionally see our resident Bald Eagles and we will definitely see Ospreys through September. Spring has sprung and most of the foliage is looking like peak summer. More later.......



Bridge Ospreys we think chick(s)! 


Goodspeed: TWO chicks!

Hamburg Cove: Glimpses of Mom in the nest, so, young for sure!

Nott Island: Relocated 

LRiver: 2 chicks


General update from the DEEP: We have 45 active nests in CT. Two have failed, others are either incubating or brooding.
