Azalea has visited the Honey Bee Golf Course in Virginia Beach for the first time. Many other bald eagles have been there in the past few months. Azalea has been wandering the past three days. She began her journey at Lake Tecumseh (YELLOW arrow Apr 6 at 7:00am). She stayed on Lake Tucumseh all day Apr 6 and the next night (PINK pointer Apr 7 at 1:00am). She then flew north to First Landing State Park and spent the night (GREEN pointer Apr 8 at 1:00am). On the early afternoon of Apr 8, Azalea flew to the North Landing River behind Rosemont Forest Elem. School, then to the Honey Bee Golf Course where she spent the night right next to the Club House (PURPLE pointer Apr 9 at 1:00am). As of this satellite map Azalea was in the patch of woods on the North Landing River across from Rosemont Forest Elem School – WHITE arrow Apr 7 at 7:00am.
As soon as I realized that Azalea was at Honey Bee Golf Course on the North Landing River this morning, I called Pam Monahan who lives nearby and visits this location often. Azalea was indeed right where the satellite reading showed her to be, and Pam got these GREAT photos. The first was taken behind Rosemont Forest Elementary School and the second on the Honey Bee Golf Course. Photos are copyright of Pam Monahan and used with permission.
My goodness, Pam Monahan will be excited! Bet she’s on her way with her camera.
Thank you Reese and Pam for the report and photos. Whom do I contact to have the river stocked with catfish?
Response – The North Landing River is full of shad. May not be room for catfish.
Great pictures Pam, good job!! I too went to HB, and did see two juvies, but not AZ. It makes me smile to see pictures of AZ and her looking so healthy. I hope she develops a taste for VB shad! Thanks for the post, as always Reese.
WOW Pam great captures !!! Our baby Diva is sure growing into a beauty. Thanks Pam for sharing and THANKS Reese for calling her 🙂
It makes me very happy to see my baby girl is safe and sound.
Love that white head! She is beautiful!
Great photos Pam, thank you for sharing them!
Wonderful photos by Pam. Azalea looks like she is doing very well.
Thanks to both Pam and Reese for keeping us up to date on the whereabouts of “our kids” We appreciate your efforts. Thanks for sharing.
Many thanks to Pam for going out and finding Azalea and taking these pictures. Great shots. What a thrill it must be to see her. Thank you Reese for the work you do in tracking these beautiful Eagles.
What a wonderful Easter present. Thank-you Pam and Reese.
