If you’re a fan of bald eagles, here’s a site to put on your travel plans for next month.
Every November bald eagles congregate on the Susquehanna River at Conowingo Dam just south of the Pennsylvania border in Maryland. Eagles like the area because the fish are easy to catch after they pass through the dam’s gateway. We like the area because there are so many bald eagles and it’s only a 4.5-hour drive from Pittsburgh.
As you can see from the video above, it’s a popular place for photography.
If you don’t mind crowds and want to see a wide selection of raptors, visit on Saturday November 14, 2015 for Conowingo’s Bald Eagle Day.
Here’s a video from last year’s event. Yes, there are crowds but you’ll see cool birds, too.
