Just having a possum breakfast in a field in Monocacy.

Great photo! I’ve yet to see an Eagle in the wild around here, though I know others have.

There are a couple here in Monocacy. I see them by the river sometimes. It is very cool.

They must be hungry as there was one in the field on 724 by A1 signs last week as well

Do not know if they are still there at Scott’s Run saw them there a couple of times

I saw one last year in Perry township eating roadkill in the street.

Two years ago I got to see one fly above me with a fish In its mouth..still one of the prettiest sights I've seen

This was ANOTHER photo by Kim McGrath. I think we need to hire her as our photographer!

Seen this guy several time, usually he is pickin on dead Deer. Thought that to be strange. Usually feed only on live feed..

We have one in Pike Township... what a beautiful sight 😁

See em all the time paddling the schulkill around gibraltar.

Awesome photo

I saw one a day or so ago in Monocacy

All the time on the high wires on 562 near Manatawny Camp

The pedestrian tunnel was built in 1923. I have a newspaper article from the 1970's of a police pursuit of a motorcycle that wound up here. The pursuit started in another jurisdiction and the pursuing officer was unfamiliar with the tunnel. The motorcycle went through cleanly and got away. The police car did not fair so well. ...

Yeah it was more than a pedestrian tunnel ! We used to drive our 1952 pick up truck through there on a regular basis! 😄

Rode our motorcycles through there many times

The locals (well, some of the locals) called those tunnels the subway. No idea why, though.

As a frequent bike rider on the trail, I'm happy to have this tunnel. Though it's still a little eerie going through there.

Torbin- In the far side of the Douglassville Hotel parking lot off of 422 E

Remember it well. Great place for riding bikes....and putting pennies on the railroad tracks

It’s still there , but it’s very muddy the schulkill trail is on top

Where is/was this tunnel located?

The subway! Went through it alot myself!

Walked through them once or twice in my day

Had no idea.

Oops
