Azalea is also on the Elizabeth River, however, in an entirely different part, the Southern Branch in Chesapeake near the I-64 high-rise bridges, about 10 miles south of Camellia. She spent all day July 29 and until 1:00pm July 30 in the northern part of Back Bay National Wildlife Refuge. She then flew non-stop to the Southern Branch of the Elizabeth River at the boat storage and launching facility south of the I-64 high-rise bridges, and as of this map at 1:00am Aug 1 was still there – white arrow.
Mr. Lukei – With the spotlight focused on the “Rock Stars” and WCV, it sometimes seems we forget the important and daily contributions that you and CCB provide. I tend to be a lurker, but I wanted to you to know I check the CCB Eagle Trak and Nest sites daily as well as review the general CCB site. I always enjoy your commentary on our Diva and her sibling! Thanks for your commitment to the environment and our education. Susan Haviland
I echo Susan’s comment !!! I, too, look forward to your posts on Azalea and Camellia. Thanks for all that you do for our eagles. (worry about them flying in such urban areas . . .)
I also echo Susan’s post! I always look forward to reading about Camellia and Azalea. It will be difficult when the transmitters are no longer working on these magnificent birds. They have been a terrific source of info and amazement. I have thoroughly enjoyed reading about them. I appreciate all the time and effort you put into keeping us informed. As to Azalea’s new spot….WOW! I don’t believe I have read about her flying there before! Interesting!
