The Susquehanna River Eagles..That's My World










During the winter months the eagles show up in large numbers at the Susquehanna river below the dam. This past Sunday hubby and I had to go and see them.




There had to be at least a hundred of them in the sky, in the trees and on the rocks. They were everywhere we looked. This is a good chance to see the juvenile Eagles at various stages.






Some we could see were starting to get their white heads, some were the first year Eagles. I am amazed to see them fish and interact with each other.







We also saw a lot of Cormorants, Black Vultures and Turkey Vultures and Great Blue Heron. We try to visit the Eagles at the Susquehanna River a few times a year maybe more. This is part of my world here in Maryland.

I'm envious that you've found such a great spot to watch eagles! Cormorants, turkey vultures and great blue herons I know where to look for but eagles are yet a mystery!

I'm so glad that the eagles are beginning to come back to nature so well. It's so good to see so many all at once! Nice photos!

What a wonderful place to go birding. We hope to get to some of the wetlands an hour south of us but life keeps getting in the way.

Hi Eileen, you have one great place to see these birds. Very nice captures. Here, the only place I could them is by the beach.

You have a wonderful world to share with us!

Marites said...

gee, i remember when we were on travel and we saw an eagle flying overhead our resort. We went into panic mode to get our camera. How much more if there're a hundred of them?! I'd be stupified LOL! Lovely captures! i'd love to see them all for real.

Hi Eileen, I lived for a year in Havre de Grace, MD - I ran through the grounds at the Veterans Hospital across the river at Perryville and often saw eagles perched in the tall trees. However, it's amazing that you saw so many. Your in-flight captures are wonderful. Your Header is beautiful, too.

Riet said...

Such great pictures. How wonderful you could see the birds from so near.

Wonderful to see so many eagles in one place - especially for a birder like yourself. The 4th photo is a real coup! Well done!

Eileen: Thanks for sharing your neat trip, loved the eagle snatching the fish. I would love to see eagles, I went a couple of times to places they are know to stay but my timing was way off, maybe next year.

I'm envious of you for being able to see such a large number of eagles. Your pictures are wonderful.

Wren said...

It is so good to see so many healthy, happy eagles. No wonder you love to visit them regularly.

My grandparents lived in Pennsylvania, and I could see the Susquehanna River in the distance from their front porch. I feel a kinship with those eagles, knowing that same river is nurturing them.

I'm from a little town called Susquehanna believe it or not:)
