Migratory Eagle At Conowingo Dam

HARFORD COUNTY, MD - NOVEMBER 29: An American bald eagle bags a fish in the prime fishing grounds below Conowingo Dam in Harford County, Maryland on November 29, 2012. On most days between Thanksgiving and into January, the shallow waters becomes a prime spot to watch 20-50 eagles hunt for prey along the Susquehanna river. Fish that are sucked through the dam turbines are easy pickings on the other side for eagles as well as buzzards, crows and seagulls. Once the first cold snaps hit in the north, the eagles migrate south for a few months. Wildlife photographers and bird enthusiasts far outnumber fishermen a the dam these days as they try to capture perfect shots of eagles hunting, mid-air fights and dining on fish. Binoculars or high powered lenses are recommended if you want to see the birds up close. Photo shot with a Nikon 600mm f4 lens with a 1.4 teleconverter.
