It had been a good long while since I'd visited the Salmon River.  S and I set out at the peak of a high tide on a warm and breezy day.
 A young Bald Eagle (it looks very young if you ask me).  It's location was given by an Osprey that was dive bombing it in an attempt to get it to leave the nesting area.
Mouth of the Moodus
With the full level of water we diverted up the bottom of the Moodus hoping that we might cross over the shallows that are just down river of the old mill dam.  Most of that came true.  We waded some.

As far up the Moodus as the canoe would go
Returning to the Salmon we took a short trip up river and around the first long swampy island.  We spotted a beautiful American Goldfinch.
