Soaring Over the Last Green Valley: A Walk to See Bald Eagles

January 14 @ 10:00 am - 11:30 am

Quinebaug Valley State Trout Hatchery, Trout Hatchery Rd, Central Village, CT

Repeats Saturday 1/21/23 at 10:00 am
Bald Eagles return to the Last Green Valley in great numbers each January. Some are seeking open waters for hunting, others are returning to their nests to rebuild and prepare for chicks. The Trout Hatchery, at the confluence of the Quinebaug and Moosup rivers and, of course, home to trout, attracts both migrant and resident bald eagles. Chief Ranger Bill Reid will lead us on an easy walk on mostly level ground while we scan the skies for soaring eagles. This location has been a successful spot to see eagles perching, hunting and flying eagles. There are always many other winter birds to see as well. Bring your binoculars or a camera and bundle up. Bill will also be sharing the latest facts on bald eagles and have materials you can take with you about these amazing birds of prey. Registation is required to ensure enough materials and that we can communicate with you regarding the weather. You can register by calling 860-774-3300 or email bill@tlgv.org.
