From Jerry Connolly and The Audubon Shop Eagle Watch Excursion:
2/4 - CT River (Haddam to Essex by land) — 20-24 Bald Eagles including three (at least) probable adult pairs.  Many outstanding views of sitting and in-flight birds (some in “talon locking” displays”); also Greater Scaup, Ruddy Duck, Common Merganser, Common Golden-eye, Belted Kingfisher, Common Raven.  Missed the Rough-legged Hawk that was present yesterday from River Museum, and Pileated Woodpeckers that had been seen repeatedly over the last couple of weeks at Chester Town Dock.  

Fun start to our Eagle Watch Series.
