2019 CT DEEP Eagle Update

2019 CT Bald Eagles: 83 Chicks! 64 Territories:  45 Successful, 7 Failed, 7 Territorial, 5 Unknown outcome

Nature is our business…

….and NATURE is good!

All the Bald Eagles nests within our cruising area have fledged at least one chick.  The scouts pointed out to Cathy that the characters in the Incredibles movies have the names Bob and Helen, you learn something new every day!  The Deep River Eagle couple, Bob and Helen fledged one chick from the nest they took over from the ospreys. The osprey platform on Brockway island was successful for the first time in many, many years!  We are starting to see the cormorants starting to congregate getting ready for migration.  Menhaden schools are everywhere along the river, we have seen them as far north as Haddam. We will keep you posted! PLEASE all be safe, be well and take care of yourselves and others. HOPE to see you soon. All the best, the RiverQuest crew.
