Susquehanna, Conowingo Eagles

The Susquehanna River trail is a trail my hubby and I frequent often. The Susquehanna River is 444 miles long. And is the longest river on the East coast. It starts in New York, goes thru Pennsylvania and empties in the northern end of the Chesapeake Bay in Maryland.

The Susquehanna River, my entry for Watery Wednesday. To see more great Watery photos go and see 2sweetnsaxy at Watery Wednesday







We love to go and see the Eagles below the Conowingo Dam. We see other birds at the river below the dam but the Eagles are the main attraction.  The guy pictured above was just about over my park car, he was eating a big catfish. I was able to zoom in on him.

The Eagles are there year round but in the winter the numbers increase dramatically. Our last visit was Sunday a week ago and there were well over a hundred Eagles juvies and adults maybe mo


I know I posted about these Eagles previously but, it is a favorite place of mine to visit especially when I able to see the Eagles.








Thansk for stopping by to see my That's my World post  to see more photos from around the world go to

That's My World. Thanks to the hosting team of  Sylvia, Sandy, Wren, Fishing Guy, Klaus and Louise.

  27. You can take this any you please but these people are not telling the truth. Your pictures are not great, marvellous, fantastic whatever. They are absolutely pathetic. These are good pictures of the Conowingo Eagles.

  28. To Anonymous, I state in my blog that I am an amateur at photography. That is no secret. I do not have an expensive camera and lens like bill majoros. I do not take photos to sell, I only take them for the fun of it. I have a Canon Powershot SX10IS, probably cost me $300 at B&H. If you do not like my pictures you do not have to look at them go over to Mr. Bills website and look at his. Or maybe he will sell you some.

  38. Hello Eileen,

    Wonderful shots today. Your so called "amateurish photography" is a joy to see.

    I have a very old digital camera, I don't know what I'm doing when I take pictures, but I hold my breath when I take the shot and hope that what I share will be enjoyed by others. That's exactly what your blog and photos do - brighten my day with something wonderful every time I visit.

    :)

  40. Amazing shots of the bald eagles! That's a trail I would love to explore! What beautiful sights along that river!

    ReplyDelete
  41. Funny, I just left a comment on another blog about the eagle's nests at Kennedy Space Center here in Florida and then I came here! I love seeing eagles, but have never come close to seeing so many at once.

    btw, I love your photos, most of us are amateurs and none of us seem to mind. Anonymous needs to get a life, or at least a name. lol

  45. Wow 100 eagles is sure a whole lot of feather flappers in one area. Great photos and you live in such a pretty area of the USA. Thanks for sharing as I have only viewed eagles in Alaska and that was years ago.
    Some have amazing wing span.

  50. Eileen you did a marvelous job, I am jealous that you could spend all that time with these wonderful birds.

  51. Nice series. We see eagles here, also, but not large numbers together. I saw one today, actually, it was chasing a raven away. But I was driving, so I couldn't try for a picture.
    Thanks for the visit!

Hello, Thanks for stopping by my blog. This is my blog about the birds I see, I hope you enjoy them as much as I do. They might not always be the best of photos because I like to keep photos as a record of where and when I see them.
I appreciate all your comments and I will always try to return the favor and visit your blog.

Due to some recent problems I will not be able to publish any comments that include a link. I would appreciate if you do not include any kind of links in your comments. Sorry!
Have a great day, Eileen
