Danger, danger, fly, fly!
Can you spot the Eagle?
This island has a lot of advantages for nesting birds, but it is not without risk. This time the Eagle appeared to leave without a meal.
About a half hour later it happened again. We were further away from the action and I didn’t capture the Eagle, but this view gives an idea of how many birds are nesting on this little island. And how unconcerned the Pelicans appeared.

You guys buy a boat? Gives birding a whole new and different perspective from the water. 🙂
LOL, no, no, no. Not that it isn’t appealing for that very reason, however the quote about a boat being a hole in the water to pour money comes to mind. 🤣
This was a tour with Coastal Expeditions. You may have gone out to Bull Island with them the winter you stayed in SC, I don’t remember. We’ve done a number of tours with them and always learn lots and have a good time.
We’ve always had a boat since the ’80s. I can confirm your boat quote. 🤣
No, we didn’t get a chance to take any boat tours that winter, but we’ve done a few on the Chesapeake Bay over the years for fun.
