Hiking and birdwatching is always fun at the Susquehanna River State Park. Spring time, the wildflowers along the trail in the park are a beautiful sight. An added bonus is stopping at the Conowingo Dam and fishing pier to see the Bald Eagles.
1. In April lots of migrating Bald Eagles can be seen at the Conowingo Dam and Susquehanna River. We also saw a Bald Eagle on a nest across the river.
Click on images for better views!
2. If you click and enlarge this photo, you can see quite a few Bald Eagles sitting on the rocks next to the river. Both adult and juveniles are hanging out together.
3. A proud looking Bald Eagle perched in a tree above the parking lot.
4. The island in the middle of the river near the dam is a Great Blue Heron rookery.
It is great to see these herons doing so well, they were also seen up and down the river. Perched on rocks and looking for food and taking care of their nest.
5. It was a Cormorant day, they were everywhere we looked.
6. At the Susquehanna River State Park we stopped at the picnic area and walked around a small pond. We saw the American Robins, Dark-eyed Juncos, Tree Swallows, lots of turtles, Pileated Woodpecker, Mourning Dove and an Eastern Phoebe.
7. The Susquehanna River trail is a great place for a walk to see the wildflowers. Some I am not sure of their names, but I saw the Dutchman's Breeches, lots of Bluebells and the bottom two (Possible Cutleaf Toothwort and Lesser Celandine) left are unknown and the pretty weeping cherry was on the ride out of the park.
8. The Bluebells were starting to bloom, another week or so they would look wonderful. They were all along the trail. We have to go back and check them out again.
