The evening of May 27, 2010 was VERY eventful. All three of the eaglets in the Norfolk Botanical Garden nest were quite active, but the prize goes to Camellia (NC). After standing on the very front edge of the nest several times, at 6:12pm Camellia made the BIG leap to the front branch (known as the love branch). After 6 minutes he returned to the nest with both of his brothers – ND and NE – and many of us watching. After a couple more jumps to the front branch, he made what everyone has been waiting for at 8:09pm – his maiden flight and right into the camera and what looked like to the camera tree about 25 feet away. You can see his historic flight on video taken by Ann Shirley linked from the Norfolk Botanical Gargen Eagles forum http://norfolkeagles.com – then Live Cam Observations, Thur 27 May 2010, (posted at 8:36 pm by annsva).
