Azalea has begun to expand her range. This map covers the period of late morning June 24 to early morning July 1. She has been visiting eastern parts of NBG and appears to have gone to smell the roses that are in bloom in the “rose garden”.
I KNOW WE HUMANS ARE NEVER HAPPY WITH WHAT WE HAVE,,BUT I THINK WHAT WOULD BE INTERESTING IS TO HAVE A TRANSMITTER ON TWO EAGLETS OUT OF THE SAME NEST TO SEE IF THEY EVER CROSS PATHS AGAIN ONCE HAVING LEFT THE NEST FOR GOOD.
Samuel – We agree with you. It would provide us with more valuable data. It is just a matter of money. The additional transmitter and satellite time alone would be another $10,000 or so.
That is expensive. I love the updates with the maps. I am surprised she never flew back to the other side of the lake again. Now she is in a different direction. Thanks for the updates.
Thanks Reese…I keep waiting for the maps and hoping I don’t see lines crossing the airport…so far so good. 🙂
OH YES I UNDERSTAND ABOUT THE EXPENSE AND I DONT IMAGINE IT WILL EVER GET ANY CHEAPER. WE HAVE A NEST HERE CLOSE TO MY HOME ABOUT THREE MILES FROM MY HOUSE. WE SEE THE ADULTS FLYING UP AND DOWN THE CREKK DURING NESTING SEASON. DONT SEE THEM MUCH DURING THE SUMMER. IM JUST WONDERING IF THEY ARE FROM AROUND THE AREA YOU GUYS ARE IN. THESE ARE ABOUT 20 MILES NORTH OF ROANOKE VA. THEY HAVE BEEN NESTING HERE NOW FOR ABOUT THREE YEARS. WE LOVE TO WATCH THEM.
