Happy Monday everyone,
On November 5th hubby and I took our walk at the Susquehanna River and at the Conowingo Dam in Maryland. Hubby and I have been going to see the Bald Eagles every year, this is a link to my previous posts on the Susquehanna River & Bald Eagle. November is a great time to see the migrating Bald Eagles, there are days you can see 100 or more Eagles.
1. Every winter the Bald Eagles gather below the dam, some are the migrating Bald Eagles and some are seen year round. It was a little foggy at the river, dam and trail when we first arrived but the fog cleared out and it was a beautiful morning. Below photos are of the Susquehanna River trail, a Great Blue Heron, Bald Eagles in the trees, fog over the river, a juvenile Bald Eagle perched on a rock in the river, eagles flying over the dam, eagles on the tower and lots of Black Vultures on the tower.
Click on the photos for better viewing!
2. The foggy Susquehanna River trail.
3. Seen from the foggy trail, a Bald Eagle high in a tree.
4. A juvenile Bald Eagle was perched on top of a rock in the middle of the Susquehanna River. The juvenile eagle below is starting to have more of the white head, it takes 5 years to attain the full white head seen on the adult Bald Eagle.
5. The fog was lifting and the sun was shining and the sky was looking beautiful. What a great day!
6. The Bald Eagles were everywhere you looked, in the trees above our heads, flying over the river and chasing each other around. It really is an amazing sight to see so many Bald Eagles at one time.
7. In this area below, I found 3 Bald Eagles ( 2 adults and one juvenile) and 2 Great Blue Herons. Can you find all 5 birds below?
8. Years ago, there was an Opsrey nest on this tower. These 2 adults Bald Eagles seem to be checking out the nest.
9. Below perched on the tower are 2 juvenile Bald Eagles on the right and one adult Bald Eagle on the lower left. The photo above was taken at the same time showing the nest and 2 adult Bald Eagles.
10. This area is popular for seeing the Black Vultures, below the are just a "few" Black Vultures hanging out on the tower. There are warning signs at the parking lot, you park at your own risk. These vultures are known to land on the cars and start eating the rubber around your car windows. Sharing an old post that shows the Black Vultures on some of the parked cars.
I have lots more photos to share for my Saturday's critters, I hope you enjoyed these views from our visit to the Susquehanna River and Conowingo Dam.
Below a Covid 19 update, which is in the news every day and in my world. This is not political, it just concerns our health and lives.
I follow and trust the Johns Hopkins website called Track Testing Trends, it shows the positivity rates in Maryland and every state in the USA. The state of Maryland as of 11/6 has a positive rate of 3.4 and just to share how bad the numbers can increase, the state with the highest number is South Dakota at 52.2. I believe any state that stays in the range of 5.0 or below is doing well handling the Virus. The Covid cases are going up each day, so take care and stay safe.
Wear your mask and keep your distance!
Hubby and I are happy and healthy, I hope everyone is doing well too.
