Public Tree Swallow Cruise on RiverQuest

Nature/Outdoors
Public Tree Swallow Cruise on RiverQuest; RiverQuest, Route 82, Haddam, CT , 06438

Tree Swallow phenomenon: now into October, tens of thousands of birds congregate in the lower Connecticut River Valley on their migration route south. One flock of birds, tree swallows, come each evening to an island to roost. It is speculated that these birds fly in from as far as 50 miles away. As many as half a million may come in at dusk where they converge just before sunset over an island, often creating a spectacular “ballet” in the sky and eventually forming a “funnel” or "rain". Then, just after sunset, they settle down into a communal roost in the phragmites (a type of reed) for the night. We will educate you on this phenomenon, answer questions and point out other wildlife (maybe a Bald Eagle or two) we may see. Bring a picnic basket, your favorite beverage. More info online..
