“Still Around”

The juvenile eagles continue to frequent the nest area, both to perch and to take advantage of the food brought by the adults. Occasionally the adults bring food and none of the juveniles come to eat - a sign of their growing independence.


Would you like a chance to see Eagles and other raptors this fall? Thousands of Raptors - along with vast numbers of songbirds and shorebirds funnel down the Delmarva peninsula every autumn. To celebrate this natural wonder - the Eastern Shore Birding & Wildlife Festival will take place from Sept. 17-20th. Headquartered in Cape Charles this festival offers guided birding trips on land and sea. Take this chance to explore Virginia's beautiful Eastern Shore and see lots of birds to boot!

The full festival program and registration form is available online at http://www.esvachamber.org/festivals/birding/. See you on the Shore!
