“Hanging Around”

One of the juvenile eagles continues to stay relatively close to home. Azalea (band HH) is still spending her time in and around the area of the Norfolk Botanical Garden. She can still be seen on camera, perching in the nest area. As of yesterday she was still being fed in the nest by the adults.

She is widening the area over which she wanders and is spending her nights in various trees in the "brush dump" area of the Garden as can be seen on her EagleTrak page. Once Azalea begins to wander over a wider area, her transmitter will begin to record increasingly valuable data in regards to juveline dispersal and important habitat for eagles. Neither of Azalea's siblings HK and HE, have been seen since July 27th and both appear to have dispersed.
