The Eagles of Conowingo Dam

November 21 & 22 - The Conowingo Hydroelectric Station on the Susquehanna River is the site of a dam where migrating bald eagles congregate for an easy meal. They're often found numbering several dozen to even a hundred or more! You can sometimes see eagles as close as 50 feet from you and they fish from early morning well into the afternoon.
