The Connecticut Audubon Society is offering bald eagle-viewing trips on the Connecticut River from February 8 through March 16, 2014. The 2-hour trips take place Thursdays at 10:00 a.m. and 1:00 p.m. and Saturdays and Sundays at 9:00 a.m., 11:30 a.m. and 2:00 p.m.
Connecticut Audubon Society will again sponsor numerous boat trips to search for the bird species wintering along the Connecticut River. Bald Eagles are found along the lower river, an important winter feeding ground and nesting site for this large bird of prey. Aboard the vessel will be naturalists to assist in identification and to talk about the local and natural history. The boat has a large heated cabin, restroom, and open decks. Cruises are approximately 2 hours in length and depart from Haddam.
