NATURE is our business…
….and business is good!
It’s September!! The humidity has diminished and it is gorgeous on the river. Most of the adult osprey are gone and the youngsters are fishing on their own. We saw a few that are still returning to the nest expecting a meal. Some young eagles are being spotted in Deep River and Hamburg Cove, they have just been hanging around. The egrets are starting to form groups and the semipalmated sandpipers have been around for a week now. Migration is starting and we are seeing some changes along the river. We hope to see you soon on RiverQuest!
Covid NOTE: We follow the latest guidelines from the CDC, USCG and State of CT. RiverQuest crew members have all been vaccinated. Passenger safety is our number one concern.
