Bald Eagle Hike - Second Chance - SOLD OUT

  • Jan 19, 2013 · 10:00 AM

The bald eagle, symbol of our nation, is perhaps one of the most majestic birds in the world. Some of us have been lucky enough to see them soaring high above. But, few ever get to see them close or, better yet, hunting prey. This is a must do adventure!


The bald eagle was considered endangered until June 28, 2007, with the side effects of DDT having decimated populations in the 1950's. But, its return is one of our greatest conservation success story. Rebounging from a low of 417 nesting pairs in 1963, in 2006 it was estimated that there are now more than 9,700 nesting pairs in North America.

This adventure begins with a hike along the Susquehanna Riverto get our blood pumping and enjoy the crisp winter air. As we hike, keep your eyes to the trees because at any moment you could encounter a bald eagle. But, at the turnaround point, prepare to be amazed because we are hiking to an amazing spot where an annual migration of bald eagles congregates around the dam.

It is reported that more than one hundred species of birds are drawn here by the giant turbines that suck water, and fish, through the dam to produce electricity. As the fish are sucked through the dam, many are temporarily stunned and float vulnerably near the surface as they exit.

Its a bad story for the fish, but a great story for us because, as they are stunned, they are easy prey for migrating bald eagles and other birds.

Do not miss this adventure! The bald eagles are only here for a few weeks as they migrate for the winter. You will kick yourself if you miss this one.Make sure to bring a camera and/or binoculars.
