Opportunity for Swallow viewing on the Connecticut River

This is an event shared with our members by Dave Zombeck

Captain Mark and Mindy of RiverQuest CT have been extremely kind and have opened up a special  Swallow Spectacular cruise date for us, Thursday evening, September 21, departure from their dock in Haddam at 5:00 P.M. If you’ve never seen it you can’t imagine what you’re missing. If you have seen it, once is not enough. In the words of Roger Tory Peterson:

“I have seen a million flamingos on the lakes of East Africa and as many seabirds on the cliffs of the Alaska Pribilofs, but for sheer drama, the tornadoes of Tree Swallows eclipsed any other avian spectacle I have ever seen.”

Enjoy the journey aboard RiverQuest as we cruise to our destination and then back to the dock during twilight.
