Although it would appear that most of the eagles have left the area, I have heard from what I consider to be a reliable source that the birds are very likely to still be in the general area. The guy who loaned me his 500mm used to shoot them there often and says that its been more luck then anything that they have been there on the Saturdays we have gone down to shoot. He says it's more or less a hit and miss thing, but they are still there. If I'm reading this correctly, this website would tend to agree with that: http://harfordbirdclub.org/conowingo.html. It says they are there from mid October to March. The last time we was there, we noticed some eagles perched on a tree on the deep water side of the dam. This was on a day when the dam was flowing a large amount of water through flood gates. I will scope out all the trails on that side of the dam and see if they are over there when they are not on the down river side of the dam. The above web site cites good light at all times in those locations and it appears that this would be correct. I may be able to get down there this Sunday morning, but the weather is supposed to be mostly cloudy. However, I can use it as a scouting opportunity... I also have the week between Christmas and New years off. My company just changed it's vacation schedule to allow for this and as of right now, we have no plans for that time, although that could change. (Gordon, I may also check out this place during that week to look for snow geese. If I do, I'll give you a shout.) I had been PM'ing several people regarding the eagles at the dam and thought this might be a better way to coordinate prospective shoots. If there is any interest in coming down/up to shoot, let me know.
