Camellia has not traveled far at all since our last satellite map. He has spent all day May 4 and 5 around Muddy Creek between the east end of Indian River Rd, Colechester Rd and N. Muddy Creek Rd in Virginia Beach. So, what is the attraction? Last week this area was flooded during very strong winds from the south that drove the water from Back Bay up over the roads and farmland. It also washed fish, mostly carp, onto the land and when the water receded, many of the fish remained stranded in the farm fields. Vultures and bald eagles are taking advantage of the fish bonanza. Map is as of 6:00am May 6 – white data point.
They really are opportunistic! I was at the garden Thursday and saw a juvenile flying with an adult – was thinking maybe Camellia made a visit – guess not.
He knows a cheap meal.
Yum… a fish smorgasbord!
darn her- Chesa- Cary and I went hunting today – saw lovely vultures feasting on carp- some big ones.
Ranger at Back Bay said he has not seen him.
Looks like he was over a mean mans house- we did not know we were trespasing – oops!
Also over the farm stand we stopped at .
He is having fun learning from AZ to be in hiding in plain sight. BRAT !
that’s very interesting and really great to see where the eagle travelled and why! 🙂
