Conowingo Dam Sunrise - Eagles - Optional Pizza Lunch

Let's venture outside of Anne Arundel County and visit the Bald Eagles at Conowingo Dam. November will be a prime time for viewing. Looking into this sort of trip, it is suggested that you spend most of the day because of the eagle activity level. They can be very active then very still for long periods of time. I'm thinking that a 6:00 am arrival time for sunrise and a 12:00pm departure would make sense. There is an optional lunch at a nearby pizza place. Carpoolers should plan on staying around for lunch. Also for this event I suggest dressing warm.

We can carpool and park at my house for those who are interested. I can drive and can fit 3 others. If you'd rather meet us there, fine too.

Please let me know if you want to carpool.

Here is a general timeline of what I'm thinking for the day. Other than the arrival time this is general and flexible to meet our needs.

6:00 a.m. Arrive Conowingo Dam for sunrise

8:00 am - 11:00 am Eagles

11/12:00 pm Lunch at De'lorenzo's in Port Deposit

    Loved it as usual.... Couldn't have been a better opportunity for shooting Eagles (with a camera that is). LOL! Great job Jennifer!

    Hillsmere, I was up at 4 and saw it raining. Looked at the forecast and went back to bed.

    • Jennifer C.

      Ok I was just asking people if their name was Lincoln... It's chilly but a bit of eagle activity.

      It's not raining where I'm standing. Where are you?

    Battery dead in car. Ugh. I'll have to catch the next one.

    Will there be a specific meeting spot? I've never been to this location so I wasn't sure if there was a parking lot to look for everyone..?

    November 13, 2013

    • Jennifer C.

      I sent it. Let me know if you got it.

      Sorry just getting over two weeks of bronchitis. I can do cold but rainy & cold is probably too much. Sorry for the late withdrawal. Can't wait to see the pictures.

  • Koretta

    Oh cool, I'm off of the wait list. Didn't expect that one. Is anyone leaving from the Bowie/ Crofton area?

    November 15, 2013

  • Jennifer C.

    Sunrise is going to be rained out or potentially pretty great. The chance of precipitation goes from 30% - 10% right around sunrise. I'll be there at 6... we'll see what happens! Dress appropriately!

  • Fanchon F.

    Going to have to cancel. Have to work. Hopefully next time.

    Hey Jennifer. Just wanted to let you know another meetup group from Lancaster is coming down with 35 rsvp's. But it appears so far they are coming a little later in the morning. So it is great we are getting there early to stake our spots.

  • Dallas

    Just wondering..... is there a reason this meet up is capped at 20?

    November 11, 2013

    • Jennifer C.

      This location gets really crowded this time of year. I try to keep the numbers of photographers limited so that everyone who attends has the best opportunity for a successful trip. If we showed up with 30-40 people it could get pretty annoying.

      November 12, 2013

  • Lincoln W.

    This sounds really cool, I hope to be able to go

    November 10, 2013

  • Bobby P.

    I thought we were scheduled for Nov 9th. Was the date changed? Or maybe I got confused when the open house was mentioned.

    November 7, 2013

    • Brenda M.

      It was originally. Moved to the 16th due to some event in the area.

  • Annette M.

    I'll be there eventhough I'm waitlisted. LOL

    November 5, 2013

    • Sidney J.

      I just backed out. So maybe you got in

  • Ursula L.

    Hi Jen,
    We're already planning to be there that weekend anyway :). Be aware that there is supposed to be an open house at the Dam that day, so get there early to get a spot on the fence and a parking space

    September 26, 2013

    • John D.

      Hi Ursula. The open house at the dam is scheduled for November 9th from 10-1. Still a good idea to get there early though.

  • David B.

    Looks like I have to cancel as I will be at a wedding in S. C.

    October 29, 2013

  • Diane D.

    This sounds like a lot of fun! I look forward to it. Thanks for putting on another great meet up Jennifer!
