“Azalea has Moved Out”

Azalea has finally left the Norfolk Botanical Garden. She was last seen in the Garden in the afternoon of Friday August 21st. From there she flew to the Northern Neck (or Upper Peninsula) and was located near Kilmarnock by that evening. She has remained on the Northern Neck moving north and spending time around the Little Wicomico River. This shallow body of water near the mouth of the Potomac River affords her ample opportunities for foraging and hunting.

With Azalea's departure the Eagle Cam has ended for the season. You can continue to follow Azalea's progress via her satellite transmitter at http://eagletrak.blogs.wm.edu/
