Azalea has not travel far. She is still on or near the Little Wicomico River in Northumberland County, VA. She is revisiting the shore of Chesapeake Bay where she spent time on her last visit a few weeks ago. So, here are the markers for her travels the past three days. Yellow arrow – Oct 22 at 7:00am, Orange pointer Oct 23 at 1:00am, Blue pointer Oct 24 at 1:00am, Green pointer Oct 25 at 1:00am, and as of this satellite map White arrow Oct 25 at 10:00am. She is back at Smith Point Marina (http://smithpointmarina.com).
I phoned the owner of Smith Point Marina and his wife did see Azalea this morning in pine trees at the marina.
Update on Oct 27. This morning about 11:30 Barbara Melton took photos of Azalea near Ophelia, VA. To see her great photos go to this link – https://www.facebook.com/media/set/?set=a.301187919910255.90968.100000571478682&type=1
It seems that Azalea is traveling but her sibling Camellia is coming back near the NBG garden, could it has anything to do with gender?
Looks like our Azalea may be spending time with NX –
Quote from WCV: October 27 12:37 p.m.: After 16 days of not checking in … NX checked in! It turns out that over the past two weeks, NX has been in the same general area of the Little Wicomico River. She did venture off on another trip from Hanson’s Cove to Vir-Mar Beach. This trip is very similar to the one she took at the beginning of October, when she was out of cell range for five days [see October 6 posting below]. After looking at the data on where NX was yesterday, we can conclude that she was not the juvenile eagle that the DGIF biologist flushed from the woods near NX’s ”usual” spot.
I bet older sister Azalea (2009) has been handing out tips to NX (2011). We’ll know for sure if NX takes off the the catfish farms later!
This is so wonderful! I love those pictures of our Azalea. Thanks B. Melton for looking. This beautiful young eagle has many many people looking for her, too. Isn’t she gorgeous! If weather is cooperative Sunday, I will join the ‘search’ for our eagle-kids! Could you let us know of good public spaces/access to view that water frontage ‘from’?
Good luck in your hunts for NX and Azalea – please keep us posted. Thanks again, to Reese and B Melton!
I began my love of eagles this spring with the 3 NBG eaglets. Since then I have been avidly watching the travels of all the siblings with transmitters. The pictures that Barbara posted of Azalea were the first I have seen of her. Wonderful to see those pictures! Also. Thank you Reese for all the update photos of the NBG eagle couple!
Very rural desolate area at Hanson’s Cove .
Very few roads. Good luck–I have been to her marina 3 times and missed her each time. She has a great seafood buffet and solitude.
Thanks for the update Reese! I don’t facebook. Is there any way to post her pictures here or on the forum? Can you get her permission?
Response – Read the previous posting. I put the link there. It ia also at http://www.norfolkeagles.com
You have to be a member of facebook to see these pictures, because they are posted on facebook. Is there a way to post these pictures so everyone can see them? Thanks!
Response – I checked Facebook and the photos have been taken down for some reason. See two on last Azalea posting on this site.
Reese, you have my permission to post any Azalea Pics you wish to..any where, if you want. I was just at the right place at the right time…dumb luck…
