PEQUEA, Pa. (AP) - Dozens of bald eagles are converging below a dam on the Susquehanna River in southern Pennsylvania because icy conditions have limited their hunting options.

The Intelligencer Journal/Lancaster New Era reported Thursday (https://bit.ly/1ejz1aq ) that one observer recently counted 61 of the once-endangered birds just downstream from Safe Harbor Dam on the Susquehanna.

The newspaper says that weeks of cold have covered large areas of the river with ice, giving the eagles, many of them immature, few options to find fish.

There are reports that about 150 eagles were seen in December a few miles downstream, below the Conowingo Dam near Havre de Grace, Md.
