Eagles In Maryland?...............You Bet!
In the mid 1970s, while living on Baker Valley Road, I saw my first Bald Eagle in the wild as it flew above the Monocacy River, not far from what is today the Monocacy National Battlefield. As time went by reports of eagles in Frederick County became more frequent, and I had my second sighting while canoeing the Monocacy River just south of Buckeystown.
These days eagles can be spotted along the C&O Canal, the Monocacy, Shenandoah and Potomac Rivers, and at the Conowingo Dam. All of the following photos were taken in 2010, I hope that you enjoy them. If you learn of any place in Frederick County where eagles can be seen regularly please let me know and I will try to add their photos to the blog.
This first group of photos are from Lilypons and the second from Conowingo Dam...
