More on the Bald Eagles

I am linking up with  :Our World Tuesday    Wild Bird Wednesday and Nature Notes

For this weeks Wild Bird I am sharing more photos of the Bald Eagles we saw at the Conowingo Dam and the Susquehanna River in Maryland..

As many of you know I have had some computer problems lately..I have not been able to visit everyone's blog post and make comments.. I believe I am back to normal now. I am using Google Chrome because the IE-11 was not compatible with blogger and my computer was reformatted..I lost some photos and documents.  I do hope everyone is backing up their computers. I learned it is not good to keep too much on your computer. I have been using my backup external hard drive and deleting photos from my files..

During the month of November this spot below the Conowingo Dam seems to be a gathering spot for the migrating Eagles.. As many as a hundred or more Bald Eagles and juveniles Bald Eagles can be seen during a day's visit..

There was a contest going on with the professional and amateur photographers taking the best Bald Eagle photos... This shot above show some of the photographers and their equipment..


Hubby and I walked further down the trail next to the river,  this Eagle was sitting on some rocks in the middle of the river. I hope you enjoyed my Bald Eagle post..

Wishing all my USA blogging friends a very HAPPY Thanksgiving..

  6. It's good to see you back Eileen! I have an external drive and a subscription to BackBlaze. I'm sorry you lost some docs and pics.

    I most certainly enjoyed your eagle post. The first one and the juvenile eagle are superb shots. I thought I saw one flying the other day, but I couldn't confirm.

    Hope you have a very Happy Thanksgiving!

  16. I love eagles and these are great photos! I've only seen two here and they were both fly overs.

    ReplyDelete
  17. Wow … all those photographers lined up along the shore must be a very curious sight for the birds. I sympathize with the pc problems and agree that backing up files is one of the most important things we can do.

  21. 1. I love your eagle shots!

    2. Microsoft gave up on Internet Exploder a ways back. It's not safe, as you already know.

    3. I use Chrome sometimes, but my main choice is Firefox. No regrets.

  27. Hi Eileen!! Your photos truly are among the most amazing of Eagles that I've seen! I saw an eagle today and thought of you, I am always in awe when I see them, and miss being able to see them as we did when we lived in Alaska.

  28. Such an elegant bird...I think you should win the contest.

  36. Beautiful eagle pictures! Have a nice Thanksgiving.

    ReplyDelete
  37. I love all your eagles photos--what a wonderful place to sight them! It seems like many photographers know about it.

    I've been using Google Chrome for awhile, Eileen. I can't say it is without problems from time to time, but I have a feeling all browsers have their moments...sigh. Yes, backup is important! I use Picasa to backup my photos and I also have an external drive.

  38. Beautiful images of the Bald Eagle, excellent filming Eileen.

    Perfectly captured this eagle Eileen.

  40. Beautiful pictures and what a proud looking bird !
    I only use Firefox and Google Chrome, Internet Explorer I gave up years ago, a real trouble maker !

    ReplyDelete
  41. Loved these photos Eileen. How very exciting to see the Bald Eagles and the juvenile one also. Happy Thanksgiving!

    ReplyDelete
  42. ...those juvenile eagles are just as impressive and the mamas and papas!!

    Ewwwwwwww, I never liked IE before, and now that you're telling us it's not compatible with blogger makes it even more so 'no-good'!!

    Happy Thanksgiving Eileen.

    ReplyDelete
  43. Thats a nice bird and a lot of people - many the Eagle Unions should organise some kind of fee!

    Cheers - Stewart M - Melbourne

  50. Hi Eileen!
    Hope you're fine and your PC will work right. It scares me to think of such problems (and I feel that is like as a matter of time till will happen something with my "blogging tool", too..) Pfiuu... not funny at all! your advice is so good about external drive...
    Amazing photos of these majestic birds... we called them "vulturi plesuvi" - bald eagles... a variaty that can be seen in our part, in mountains, as well!
    All the best till next time and thank you for your thoughts! Alexa

    ReplyDelete
  51. What majestic sights those bald eagles are! Your photos - especially the first one - are breathtaking!
    I'm glad you are done with computer issues. Your photos are far too valuable to risk.

    ReplyDelete
  52. Sorry to hear about your computer woes....losing files is heartbreaking...especially when they are photographs.
    I enjoyed your eagle shots.. I have never seen an eagle..except high in the sky.

    ReplyDelete
  53. Welcome back, Eileen! Great shots of the bald Eagles, love them!

    ReplyDelete
  54. So good to have you back, Eileen. Computer woes are no fun at all. I appreciate your tech advice, and do back up my files on an external drive, though perhaps, not as often as I should. As for those eagles, they are magnificent! Had to smile at that long line of photographers. We see that sort of thing here in the best bird-watching spots, even when there is no contest. I often wonder what the birds think :) A very happy Thanksgiving to you and your loved ones!

  55. What a gorgeous bird!
    Nice shots.

    ReplyDelete
  56. that's an impressive number of Eagles to see during a visit, oh how I wish we had the same opportunities here in the UK..... I love the juvenile with the two vultures

  57. Beautiful Eagles!!! Happy Thanksgiving to you and yours~

  58. Awesome Eagle shots. What a privelege you had to see these birds up close like that. I also liked your shot of all the photographers.

  59. Hi Friend, Just stopping by to say Happy Thanksgiving to you. Even in places where Thanksgiving is not celebrated (or celebrated on the 4th Thursday in November like ours is) —it can be a time for each of us to take time to thank God for our blessings and also not to forget the “Giving” in the word, ThanksGIVING. We all have lots of blessings —but many times, we ignore the giving part….Not just on Thanksgiving Day, but all of the time, please take time to contact family/friends just to say HI… And remember that a big SMILE can lift someone’s day…. Little things like that can really HELP..

    Your Eagle photos are marvelous --probably much better than those 'professional' photographers... ha

    God Bless…
    Happy Thanksgiving.
    Hugs,
    Betsy

  60. Wow..I love the close up..wow..wow.. I have an older laptop and IE is useless. I also turned to Chrome when Firefox isn't cooperating. After my last crash, I signed up for Carbonite which works in the background and I back to a hard drive..I am sorry this happened to you... Happy Thanksgiving.. Michelle

  61. How exciting! You got some wonderful photos! Neat that there is a contest there for the bald eagle viewers. That picture reminded me a little of the shots of lines of people in NY watching the redtails nesting on the skyscraper. I haven't thought of that book/documentary film in a while. :-) You also made me think of my childhood with your mention of the Conowingo Dam...I remember it from living in Havre de Grace and also Bainbridge as a child. I am so sorry you have been having so many problems with your computer. All my photos go on disks immediately but I don't back up my computer. Nothing else really on it these days, but that may change. I don't understand enough about computers to handle problems like that, and I am just happy you got yours figured out and are back and running! Have a blessed, wonderful Thanksgiving today....gotta get in the shower! :-)

    ReplyDelete
  62. Welcome back! I had to switch to Chrome a while back, as well. An external drive to store my photos sounds like a good idea.

    Wow, you didn't even have to leave the parking lot to get great photos of the eagles! Nice!

    ReplyDelete
  63. Oh Eileen, I cannot stop the goosebumps running up and down my leg!!!! Thank you for sharing these!!!...:)JP

  64. You got great shots here Eileen. You got really close on that first one. Lovely!

    ReplyDelete
  65. Your eagle photos are gorgeous, I like the expression on the juvenile's face who looks like he is really scrutinizing you as well. The line of photographers is funny.
