Up The Creek

It seems that recently I have been spending quite a bit of time up Selden Creek, a lovely side-water of the Connecticut River. A friend of mine Louise M. took this photo as we cruised along what I like to call "The Poor Man's Amazon" due to its similarity to the canals that you run in boats when in the Amazon or places like the Tortuguero in Costa Rica.

At EcoTravel, we are just about to jump into the heart of our swallow season. If you have not joined us in the past (or want to see it again - as many do!) give us a call so you can be amazed by the 500,000 Tree Swallows and their aeriel ballet as they come into roost each night during the month of September. Famous ornithologist, Roger Tory Peterson thought this to be one of the best displays of bird behavior he had ever seen. Don't miss this!
