Need a little something fun to do in the middle of winter? Let's go look for Bald eagles. Register today to secure your spot! The open water of the Connecticut River is a great place to find Bald Eagles during the winter. The river attracts a variety of raptors, water fowl and other birds as they search for food during the wintertime. Join Karen Stein, Director at Moose Hill, and Doug Williams, Director at Stony Brook, for this captivating road trip to Connecticut. We will travel by van from Stony Brook with plenty of stops along the river to scope out the birds before heading to the Griswold Inn to partake of their traditional Hunt Brunch. After our meal we will walk down to the dock in Essex for one last look at the river before heading back home. Brunch, with a non-alcoholic drink, is included in the price. Snow date: February 9.
Bring binoculars, a spotting scope if you have one, and your favorite bird app or book.
Please plan to dress in layers and wear appropriate winter shoes for your comfort as we will have time in a heated van as well as time outside along the river.
We will travel as a group, leaving from and returning to Stony Brook in Norfolk. If you would prefer to meet at Moose Hill at 7:30 am and travel with the van to Stony Brook to collect the rest of the group, please leave a comment when registering and we will confirm.
