What You’ll Find At This Little Known Natural Sanctuary In Maryland Is Incredible
Located in Darlington, you’ll find the mighty Conowingo Dam. While this structure on the Susquehanna River is quite industrial, there is a certain patriotic bird taking advantage of the waters here.
An any given day, dozens of photographers line up along the observation area.
They set up their cameras and zoom lenses, patiently waiting for their perfect shot.
As the water level rises and river water flows in, so do a variety of fish. This is when the magic happens.
Bald eagles, sometimes in the hundreds, swoop in for an easy catch.
Sometimes they squabble over a meal, making for an even more spectacular and intriguing photo.
It's a glorious sight to behold, and a shutterbug's paradise.
The number of bald eagles are most abundant November through January, which is also a great time to capture the autumnal foliage as well.
You can watch the following video for even more information and astonishing footage of bald eagles at this site.
