River Updates 

 

  

 

Tree Swallow cruises have started! Beautiful evenings lately! Lots of swallows and many Purple Martins this year....very interesting. Most martins we have ever seen. We are still seeing the "Brockway Island" Bald Eagle couple every time we have gone south on a Sunset Cruise. Also, having fun listening to the three Bridge Osprey babies squawking at the top of the bridge. Scary to think Mom and/or Dad will be begin their journey south in a couple of weeks. Still seein the Goodspeed nest Eaglet! A good story there. If you are looking to book a Tree Swallow Cruise, just try the date you want to come using our on-line reservations. If it says sold out at the booking page, it is. We will maybe be adding a few more evenings, some of our charters have not fully confirmed. yet. you could also send an email and we will add you to a waiting list.
