John Dever, one of the Aquarium's naturalists, reports seeing quite a few raptors on each cruise. "Yesterday was an outstanding day for continuing fall colors and the viewing of hawks and other migrants. A pair of Great Egrets wading the shoreline near Williams Island with a Bald Eagle in the trees above. Down in the Gorge we saw a couple of acrobatic Cooper's Hawks, as well as the more frequently viewed Red Tailed Hawk. On the way back we spotted a late season Osprey to round out a nice raptor list."
The weather looks pretty nice for the upcoming Veteran's Day weekend. Maybe a relaxing day on the river is just what the doctor ordered before the holiday season begins. Enjoy!
