I took all of the Bald Eagle photos in this post while I was on the Lower Susquehanna Heritage Greenway Trail in Harford County, Maryland. The Lower Susquehanna Heritage Greenway Trail is adjacent to the Conowingo Fisherman's Park. People travel from all over to try to photograph the Bald Eagles here.

My husband and I happened to be in the area last week when we decided to stop at the Conowingo to take a short walk and check out the scenery. I was hoping to see a Bald Eagle to photograph for SMAP but if not then I could get some new shots of the Black Vultures there. Black Vultures would have also fallen into the "raptor" category but, surprisingly, we saw very few while we were there.

I guess you could say that this was one instance that luck was on my side and that a few of my photos of the Bald Eagle came out fairly nice looking considering how far away the Bald Eagle was. Lucky too that my husband has a keen eye for spotting them perched way up high in the trees. We both heard it but he was the one that spied and pointed the Bald Eagle out to me.

I think the the Bald Eagle is not only a majestic bird but fierce looking as well. I think that comes from their intense looking eyes. I had to laugh at seeing its one claw clenched up like it was just ready to punch somebody ... lol. Sorry, but now that I've said it and you see it, it's hard to not see it! Am I right?! I'll just be going now! 😁
