Our first public cruise of the year was a lot of fun. We saw all kinds of interesting things! Ospreys, Cormorants, geese, ducks and more. Some of the nesting Osprey's appear to have young, still hard to tell. The Selden Island Hike also went great, keep your eyes open for the date for the October hike. Two Bald Eagles were spotted on that cruise, a two year old and a fully mature eagle. Checked out the Haddam Island Eagle's nest, two babies for sure! Got an OK picture of one of them, see below.

 

The "SWING BRIDGE OSPREYS" are still incubating.

First egg was laid April 30 on their new platform.  So, we hope for a hatch around April 12. We'll keep you posted!

Funds are still being taken to help cover the cost of the "community" funded platform.
