Successful Eagle Season

Without the Eagle Festival this year, EcoTravel had its best eagle season benefiting from the many people who might have gone to the festival looking for boats. The ice coverage for about 10 days was ideal, concentrating about 35 eagles in the stretch of river from Essex to Hamburg Cove. Once the ice left town, the eagles spread out and were not so numerous. The lower numbers did not reduce the quality of the sightings offering many close encounters and superb photo opportunities.

We are now in our Osprey season and trust that you will be able to join us on one of those boats or some of our other great bird and natural history tours.

Photos are of first year, second year, and adult bald eagles.
