Havre De Grace, Maryland


Hello and Happy Monday everyone!


This is the last Monday of January, did the month go by quickly for you?  I am just happier we are a little closer to Spring.  I am looking forward to seeing Spring flowers and feeling the warm sunshine and spending more time outdoors to get my vitamin D.  

Jan 21st, last weekend hubby and I enjoyed a day trip to the Susquehanna River, Conowingo Dam and Havre De Grace Maryland. We saw the Bald Eagles at the Dam and river and we took a walk on the waterfront boardwalk at Havre De Grace. So here are some of my photos from that day. 




Two adult Bald Eagles with one juvenile eagle.


This juvenile looks like he is starting to get his white head.


Conowingo Dam attract lots of gulls in the winter, sometimes a rare gull or sighting can happen.







The Lighthouse at Havre De Grace Maryland.



A flock of Canada Geese and it looks like one white Snow Goose mixed in.


Various ducks and Canada Geese at the waterfront in Havre De Grace.


More ducks, gulls and geese.


Just a reminder, don't forget to look for the Blue Moon, the second full moon of the month on January 31st. 



As always I thank you for stopping by and as always I appreciate your comments.

My list of memes for today, I hope to see you there. Thanks to both of the host below.

I love that migrating birds just go about their business. And the eagles are wonderful. I saw a film last week on the news of eagles sailing down a river on floating patches of ice.

Hello,

Beautiful photos of the eagles! It must be wonderful to look at them so close. The lighthouse is very pretty.

I long for spring too. Here it's snowing again today.

Happy Monday!

Nice pictues. The eagle one with all 3 was special. The way the ducks look on the water with the misty background - love it.

Your photos of the eagles are so beautiful. They’re also chilling for it looks very cold there. Brrrr! Wishing you well!!

Gulls always seem to concentrate near dams, and I suspect that if there are turbines there fish get chopped up and provide a feeding bonanza.

You know where to find the amazing creatures.

Tom said...

...lovely collection, the lighthouse is wonderful.

Sondra said...

Love the eagles, I have to wonder if they are a family...they usually lay eggs in January. I hope this rain is gone by the 31st so I can see the night sky...it's been coming down for 2 solid days I'm getting cabin fever.

Mary Hone said...

It's like a bird haven, what a nice spot. Love the eagles!

Dee said...

Oh my word ............eagles!!! Is there anything more fun that seeing eagles.

I bet the little one's voice is changing too .........LOL He's at that awkward stage.

Crissi said...

Lovely shots of the eagles! Aren't they fabulous?! I can't believe it is the end of January already.

I love the lighthouse in Havre de Grace which is on my “must visit”list of places!
Have a good week!

Lois said...

Beautiful photos of Havre De Grace! I was there a couple of years ago with my sister and my niece and stood right next to that cute little lighthouse for a photo. My sister used to work at the hospital there before she moved to Texas.

Debbie said...

The Eagles are wonderful -- what a great place to walk. Thank you for the Blue Moon reminder ... I bet it was from you that I first learned what a blue moon was. I know I always love your 'moon shots.'

RedPat said...

It is thrilling to see the pics of the Eagles with their young one, Eileen!

Betsy Adams said...

OH --how I love seeing the Eagles.... Awesome.....

I also love hearing the sounds that the Canada Geese make when they fly overhead... They certainly announce their presence....

Have a great week.
Hugs,
Betsy

Wonderful pictures of the eagles.
My daughter lived in Havre De Grace for a bout a year back in the 90's. Nice place.

Jeanna said...

I am so jealous of these shots but you've motivated me to go back to the damn and see what's shakin',

Betty Crow said...

One of these days I hope to see an actual bald eagle in real life. Even better would be to get a pic. Lucky you! Beautiful pictures.

It must be so special to see those bald eagles on your walks. The weather looks cold but worth wrapping up warm to see those sights.

Jeanie said...

Oh, I hope I get to see the blue moon tomorrow! Thanks for the reminder.

Lea said...

Love the Eagles!
We usually see a lot of gulls when we go to Pickwick Dam in Tennessee. I just wish they would slow down a minute so I could get a good photo or two!
Hope you are having a wonderful week!

Missy George said...

Wonderful shots of the Eagles..Love the little Light house..I have never been to that dam although I have been to Havre De Grace!! Enjoy your week..

ellen b. said...

Such a lovely place to visit. Those eagles are great. Nice catch of the juvenile, too. That gulls in flight shot with the rough water is really cool. Love the lighting in that last shot. Thanks for the reminder of the blue moon!

Our photos said...

Angie said...

I learned something today - the appearance of a juvenile bald eagle. I may have been identifying a juvenile as an osprey ... Thanks!

The Yum List said...

Lovely photos as always Eileen.

NatureFootstep said...

I have a hard time ID-ing gulls so I would probably not notice the rare ones :) But probably fun to see anyway.

Uppal said...

Great pictures all. Flying eagles look awesome!

betty-NZ said...

You have such a fantastic eye for nature, Eileen! And, you have to be quick to get some of those images! Simply wonderful to see :)

Pat @ Mille Fiori Favoriti said...

We passed Harve de Grace many times on way to DC when our son was in college there but never stopped. I regret that now. I pinned the lighthouse to my Pinterest Lighthouse board--thanks!
