Camellia began this three day period in flight over Little Neck in Va Beach (YELLOW arrow Feb 21 at 2:00pm). She then turned north flying to Lake Joyce then to Lake Bradford for the night (PINK pointer Feb 22 at 1:00am). On the 22nd she flew to Little Creek Reservoir and spent the day before returning to the same place at Lake Bradford (GREEN pointer Feb 23 at 1:00am). On the 23rd she flew to the Elizabeth River behind Carolanne Farms then back north to spend the night on Lake Whitehurst near Norfolk Botanical Garden (WHITE arrow Feb 24 at 1:00am).
Reese, thanks for the new maps! Bob Mislan posted a picture of an unbanded juvenile that came near the nest when the male and female were sitting on the love branch today, Feb 24th. I see Camellia was there at 1 am, could it have possibly been Camellia, and Bob just missed the bands? Thanks!
Response – we will have to wait until the next map to find out.
I spotted three at a fairly high altitude over Carolanne Farms on the 22nd. I suppose I missed him by a day. Again.
I’m certainly not complaining though. It’s a fine thing to see Eagles.
Thanks to the new technologies we are able to follow the natural development of different spices all around the globe, it is simply incredible! Reese, one big thank you for sharing it with us!
