Conowingo Eagles

Conowingo Dam Eagles - Each year starting in late October and building to a peak in December, the Conowingo Dam in Maryland sees a true 'Gathering of Eagles'...as many as 150 can be here at the same time...It is one place to go back to again...and again...and again to capture images of these majestic birds. Conowingo Dam is a 90 year-old hydro generation facility on the Susquehanna River in the Northeast corner of Maryland. <img

alt="Image result for how old is the conowingo dam" /> owned and operated by Exelon Energy, who is very supportive of the eagle habitat there and welcomes photographers to come and create images of these majestic American birds. When the locks on the Conowingo are opened to let the Susquehana River flow thru, there are a series of sirens that go off...alarmingly loud...and red lights flashing in several locations...When we were then on October 30, 2018 for the first time to photograph, a fellow photographer who was experienced told me that the eagles know that the sirens are the 'dinner bell'... Why?  When the dam is opened and water flowing thru...almost violently...fish from up river are swept up in the hydro-malestrom and pulled thru the dam...on the lower side the fish are slightly stunned...swimming around 'drunkenly' and the 'fishing is easy' for the eagles...so for many years, this place has been a gathering of eagles. Being there and seeing so many birds (only a couple dozen or so the day we first visited) is an amazing sight...This gallery on Gryphon Images has a few images from our first visit...we'll be going back many times...will hopefully have the opportunity to improve this collection as we add to our photography adventures.
