“Still Around”

Although our young eagles are officially fledged they're still in the neighborhood. They are learning the skills they'll need to survive on their own once their parents aren't providing for them.

While these young birds still rely to some extent on their parents for food, observers have noted them attempting to hunt on Lake Whitehurst which abuts the Norfolk Botanical Garden.
