While I was away checking on the Kodiak brown bears in Katmai, Alaska, Camellia spent most of his time in the area of the Eastern Branch of the Elizabeth River in Virginia Beach. On the last map he made a brief visit to Bow Creek Golf Course – YELLOW arrow Aug 7 at 5:00pm. He then spent one night in Witchduck in Va Beach PINK pointer Aug 9 at 6:00am, before heading south to Land of Promise Rd in rural Chesapeake GREEN pointer Aug 10 at 1:00am. Camellia then flew back north and for the next few days hung around variours neighborhoods (he is an urban eagle) on both sides of the Elizabeth River and I-64 in Va Beach and Norfolk – PURPLE pointer Aug 11 at 1:00am, ORANGE pointer Aug 12 at 1:00am, LIGHT BLUE Aug 13 at 5:00pm, YELLOW POINTER Aug 15 at 5:00pm, WHITE POINTER Aug 16 at NOON. As of this satellite map Camellia is near the southern end of Indian River in Chesapeake in the Georgetown neighborhood off Longdale Crescent – WHITE ARROW Aug 8 at 7:00pm. Click maps to enlarge.
Happy to read that this “urban eagle” has come back to my branch of the Elizabeth River. Now if I could just find him! I’m wondering if it was him I saw flying this morning around Military Highway and Paramont Avenue. Thanks for the update!
I guess we should not have moved from our old neighborhood in Chesapeake to downtown Norfolk. Glad to hear from both of them. Also, liked reading in the paper last week about “Hope”. Wow, what a traveler!
Missed postings of Azalea and Camellia while you were gone north to Alaska. So interesting to see their very different travel patterns.
Please could you tell me how to keep up to date on the eagle nest at NBG? I don’t belong to the forum, just facebook. Is there an easy way to follow the proceedings? As always, thank you so much! I sooo hope you enjoyed your trip to AK!! I have heard from many that it was the best vacation they ever, ever took!!!! Thanks again, Susan
Response – As far as I know the agencies have not publically stated what their plans are for removing the nests. I do not know if they plan to keep us informed of their followup activities.
