“Still Around”

Although all three of the young eagles are spending increasing time away from the nest area...they still retain at least some bond to the nest . Yesterday evening all three returned to the nest to feed on a fish brought in by one of the adults. Each of the juveniles (and the adult) managed to get a share.

Maps of the recent movements of Azalea show that she is spending considerable time away from the nest at the "dump", an area where the Norfolk Botanical Garden disposes of landscape debris and clipping. This area is a favorite perch for the adults and Azalea is regularly joining them there. The map indicates that Azalea still returns often to the area in and around the nest
