Conowingo Dam

Unlike past years, the weather today was perfect for Eagle watching at Conowingo Dam.  Over 170 adult and immature Bald Eagles were spotted.  They were either soaring directly over our heads, or perched on the distant rocks and towers.


Black Vultures were numerous and will rip the windshield wipers off your car when you're not looking! 
Watching Bald Eagles here  is popular with both birders and photographers.
We headed over the the marina in Havre de Grace and walked on the Promenade. 

We noticed this Song Sparrow during our walk along with Golden-Crowned Kinglets, Brown Creeper, Mockingbird, Mallards, Canada Geese, Great Black-backed Gull, Double Crested Cormorant, and Ring-billed Gulls.

The Concord Lighthouse was our turnaround point.  We then drove into Havre de Grace and had a hearty lunch at MacGregor's Restaurant.  Thanks everyone for a fun day!
