Bald Eagle perching on Shore Pine

Gerry observed and photographed yet another raptor in the bog:
 We had another successful work party this past Saturday with 15 volunteers in attendance. We collected mosses from the forest and planted a large section to the east of the platform.
    We collected more moss during the week in hopes that the weather will cooperate for another week and we will have time to plant remaining areas.
    While I was in the bog this past Sunday I look up as there was a number of crows making a lot of noise.This is a usual sign an intruder is in their area and sure enough the Bald Eagle  had landed some 50-60 ft. from where I was standing. He then proceeded to move to the dead shore pine. 
    The eastern Blue Jay that all the birders we looking for didn't show up in the bog but our Bald Eagle paid us a visit. Enjoy!
    See you all on Saturday.
