Camellia in the past week has spent four nights at Norfolk Botanical Garden -1:00am Oct 21, 22, 23, and 24. On the last satellite map Camellia was off Miller Store Rd east of the Norfolk Airport (Yellow arrow). From there he revisited the eastern Branch of the Elizabeth River, but returned to NBG in the late afternoon and was there at 1:00am Oct 23 (Pink pointer). On Oct 23 he spent the entire day at NBG and again stayed overnight – 1:00am Oct 24 (Purple pointer). Yesterdat Oct 24 Camellia flew over Little Creek Naval Amphib Base then turned south to the eastern branch of the Elizabeth River and roosted overnight (Green pointer). As of this satellite map at 10:00am today Oct 25, Camellia is on the southern branch of the Elizabeth River just west of the locks at Great Bridge in Chesapeake, VA – White arrow. Blue pointer is NBG.
I wonder if Camelia “visited” with his father …
By the way, I haven’t seen anything about this year’s NZ (?)
Is anybody tracking this lovely little sibling???
And, now that the Camera has been turned on when do you think we will be able to watch Dad with his new mate?
Response – Re NX tracking go to http://www.wildlifecenter.org
Stay away from the runway!!!
Hi Reese, I was just on 264 going towards 64 (norfolk) @ 11:00am today. I got on at the Lynnhaven exit and just about 1 minute of being on the interestate a juvi eagle (my first that I could probably identify) was flying back and forth over the interstate. Could that have been Camelia? Could only see the underside of him/her.
Response – Possible that it was Camellia, but I will not know until I get the next satellite map in two days.
Wonder if he’s trying to move in on Dad’s area?
Crossing the runway!Yikes!No way to stop that with these majestic creatures,eagles or otherwise.
Glad to see he was around the gardens.Wonder if he was the 3rd eagle seen the other day.Could be. Thanks for keeping us posted Reese.Can’t wait for the new season to begin
On October 21 at around 2 pm, I saw 2 juvenile eagles sitting together in the very top of a pine tree on West McGinnis Cir just off the eastern branch of Elizabeth River. They stayed for about 10-15 minutes. I could not get a close enough look with my binnoculars to see if one had an antenna.
Response – Very possinle – Camellia has been in that location many times.
Looks like Camellia came home for my birthday! Such a special present. Thanks so much for the updates.
