In its fifth year, the event draws visitors from all over the Middle Atlantic Region and beyond who crowd Conowingo Dam’s Fisherman’s Park to photograph migrating eagles – and some who live around the dam all year – fishing and cavorting over the Susquehanna River.

The free event runs from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. and is centered around the pavilion at the base of the dam on the Harford County side of the river at at 2569 Shures Landing Road in Darlington.

Conowingo Dam provides prime breeding, nesting and foraging grounds for the American bald eagle, Exelon Generation, the dam’s owner notes in a news release. Visitors are invited to come and learn about bald eagles, wildlife photography, and birding around the dam.

Eagles Day draws of hundreds of people, and visitors are urged to park at the Conowingo Visitors Center, 4948 Conowingo Road (Route 1) and take the free shuttle bus service to the park.

The event is sponsored by Support Conowingo Dam, an advocacy organization for the dam and its hydroelectric plant established by Exelon Generation.
