 American Bald Eagles

One of my newest passions is wildlife photography, and there is no subject I like photographing more than the magnificent American Bald Eagle!

I am fortunate to live less than an hour away from the Conowingo Dam on the Susquehanna River in Maryland.  Conowingo is the east coast mecca for observing Bald Eagles.  The hydroelectric generation plant keeps the water below the dam from freezing even in the coldest weather.  From October through December there are typically hundreds of birds in the area.  And the river is a plentiful source of fresh fish!

 Senior Life Institute - Back Yard Birds

Highland Presbyterian Church's Senior Life Institute invited me to present a program on my bird photography.  Due to the pandemic, we could not meet in person.  So Josh Witmer was kind enough to record my presentation and post it to Highland's YouTube channel.

I shared photographs captured at Middle Creek Wildlife Management Area, Wissahickon Creek, Chestnut Grove Nature Area, the Conowingo Dam on the Susquehanna River, and Brubaker Run, among others.  All of these locations are less than an hour's drive from my home, so I consider all of these magnificent creatures my "back yard birds"!

 Underwater Photography Award Winners

Enjoy a gallery of images that have won national and international awards over the years!  My earliest photos were taken on Kodak Ektachrome film with a Nikonos amphibious underwater camera.  I later made the transition to digital photography with Nikon DSLR's in Aquatica housings.

 Exelon 2020 Bald Eagle Photo Contest Award

My image received the Photographer's Choice Award in this year's contest!

It was taken on Fisherman's Wharf below the Conowingo Dam, and captured the bird we nicknamed Scooter  successfully defending his fish from a challenging juvenile. 

Scooter perched in a sycamore tree on the bank of the river as he scanned the water below waiting for his opportunity.  I had seen him doing this on several occasions. This particular morning I waited for nearly an hour. I was ready to give up when in a flash, he dove to the water and snatched his breakfast.  

It's one thing to catch a fish.  It's quite another to keep it!  Scooter kept his fish!

Mine, all mine!
