Azalea has been getting a lot of flying time in the past fews days. On Monday Aug 31 she left the area around Blackwells and flew north of Burgess and Edwardsville to Hull Creek where she spent the night. She was very active on Tuesday Sept 1 as she flew back to the Wicomico River near Blackwells, then west almost to Howland on the Wicomico, then back north to Hull Creek and spent the night. On Wednesday Sept 2 she spent the day exploring both sides of Hull Creek near the Potomac River, and at 6:00pm was in a small patch of woods just off Candy Point Rd on the east side of Hull Creek.
Azalea may be hanging around here in Northumberland County because she has the company of other bald eagles. That we don’t know for certain. However, there are 16 active bald eagle nests in Northumberland County. You can see where these nests are located in relation to where Azalea has been since August 22 by going to www.ccb-wm.org/virginiaeagles/ and click on Nest Locator, then enter Northumberland County.
