Nature is our business…

….and business is good!

NEW! On 03-21 we saw at least one of the East Haddam Swing Bridge Ospreys!! I checked two of our local Bald Eagle’s nests, from activity, I’m going with no chicks yet. We will try to get out on the river later this week on our little boat “Scout”.  Thank you to all who joined us on our Winter Wildlife Eagle Cruises. We had a very nice season out on the river. Much warmer than usual (in most cases!). We saw from four to 24 Bald Eagles and lots of other winter wildlife. We will resume cruises with our Spring Osprey/Eagle Cruises when this coronavirus crisis has passed. In the meantime, RiverQuest is out of the water getting new engines and general updates for a few weeks. We will, however, be heading out on the river occasionally on our small boat, Scout and we will update on what we see! There is lots going on with our wildlife on the river that we need to report! Thank you all, be safe and well and hope to see you soon! 🙂

Cruising the Connecticut River
