Maryland’s Blackwater NWR has the largest concentration of breeding Bald Eagles on the East Coast, north of Florida. During the winter, the population soars with transients.
Even though I see at least one Bald Eagle at almost every visit, I still feel lucky and get excited each time.
Most times they are flying high in the sky or perched too far off for great photos. Just seeing Bald Eagles in their realm is rewarding. And sometimes you get lucky with a close fly-by or find one a little closer to the wildlife drive for a photographic opportunity.

Just something so beautifully majestic about them makes the Bald Eagle one of my top favorite birds.
