The expert birder at the boardwalk had a spotting scope. I was able to take a photo of the resident bald eagle that was up in a tree about 1/2 mile away.
He did not seem to be concerned about us and hopped around on the ground near us for several minutes. Then he flew up to give some food to what we assumed was his spouse.
Then he flew to another tree and gathered some nesting material, possibly Spanish moss, and took it over to where they had been sitting.
