Connecticut River Bald Eagles

Bald Eagles are one of the great environmental success stories of the last 40 years. After a devastating population drop due to DDT damage to their eggs in the 1960s, Bald Eagles have made a spectacular comeback since the early 1990s. You can now routinely expect to see Bald Eagles at all of the major Connecticut reservoirs, and along most areas of the Connecticut Rivers, particularly in the stretch from Middletown south to the river mouth at Old Saybrook.
