More Bald Eagles In Flight From Blackwater NWR

A series of Bald Eagle in-flight images taken over a few visits to the Blackwater National Wildlife Refuge in Maryland. I find Blackwater NWR has one of the largest amount of Bald Eagles in the Northeast and is a fairly easy drive to get there from my home. The Featured Image was a quickly taken 2 shot panorama to get both wingtips in the image.

Bald Eagle Images From Blackwater NWR

One of my Favorite NWRs to photograph in is the Blackwater National Wildlife Refuge in Maryland. Great variety of subjects from the Wildlife and Great Sunrises & Sunsets. You never know what you will see to photograph. Blackwater National Wildlife Refuge hosts the largest concentration of breeding Bald Eagles on the East Coast, north of Florida. Bald Eagles in the wild can live up to 30 years, but usually average 15 years. Following are a series of Bald Eagle images from various trips to photograph there.

Bald Eagle Flying Closer

On a visit to Blackwater NWR I saw a Bald Eagle off in the distance. It was flying towards me so as it was getting closer I was tracking & taking images of it just in case it changed course. After I got a few images it veered off & flew away. But at least a got a few images of the Bald Eagle to post here.

Bald Eagle In Tree Portrait

On a previous visit to the Blackwater NWR we saw this Bald Eagle in a tree at the entrance to the Refuge. I thought this was going to be a Great Day for photographing Bald Eagles. After I went through the Entrance Gate I pulled over to get out of the car to photograph the Eagle. The Featured Image was taken when I got a little closer and is cropped for an Eagle Portrait. I got quite a few images before I continued on the Wildlife Drive.

Bald Eagle Fly-By @ Blackwater NWR

A series of 3 images of a close Bald Eagle Fly-By taken at the Blackwater NWR in Maryland. I was using a Canon 400mm DO lens with a 1.4x teleconverter on a Canon 1D mkIV. I shot a series of images as it flew by me but I only used a few images here with the wings up. I seem to see more Bald Eagles at the Blackwater National Wildlife Refuge near Cambridge Maryland than any of the other National Wildlife Refuges near me. I also read somewhere that it has the largest population of Bald Eagles in the Northeast.

Blackwater Bald Eagles

I am going through images from past trips to post here. These images were from a trip to Blackwater NWR in December of 2008. The featured image was taken with Canon 400mm DO lens with a 1.4X Teleconverter on a Canon 1D mkIII. On this trip it was a good day for Bald Eagle flight images!
