Azalea continues to find Alligator River NWR attractive. She has not moved about much during this period. She did fly south across Rt 64 on Jan 18, 19 and 20 to the farm fields. She again has returned each night to what has become her “roost”. As of this map at 4:00pm Jan 21 she is sitting in the middle of the woods between South Lake and her “roost” area. Where she is staying at night is off limits to people.

Azalea’s parents are getting close to the time we expect them to lay eggs. This season there is a separate blog site to follow the NBG bald eagle pair and their offspring at CCB’s Eagle Nest Blog: http://eaglenest.blogs.wm.edu.
