Grace made one short brief flight south of TRS on May 2 at Noon – Pink pointer. Other than that she remained at the NC Tidewater Research Station the past three days. Back in the communal roost as of this map – WHITE arrow May 3 at 6pm.
So “carolina girl” you start to leave then think..yummmm..catfish..and return..too cute stinker..Thank you Reese…Have the babies fledged at the Kempsville..Witchduck Rd. nest ..is everything alright there..?
Response – Kempsville eaglets should fledge about 1st week of June.
Thanks for the update.
Glad to hear of Grace’s travels–sounds so familiar.
Once the eaglets from the Kempsville nest fledge, is the city allowed to cut down the tree to prevent any reoccurrences? We have driven by the tree and one of the adults was sitting at the very top surveying his “Kingdom”!
Response – The City of Virginia Beach has filed with the US Fish & Wildlife Service for permission to remove the trees, but to my knowledge the permit has not yet been issued.
Why would the city of Virginia Beach want to remove the trees? Do we now have a war on eagles? I am still upset about Norfolk destroying Dad’s nest.
Nita – This pair of eagles have built a nest at one of the busiest intersections in Virginia Beach. It is a VERY poor location for the safety of the eagles, especially the eaglets as they fledge. It is best to remove the nest tree and allow the eagles to rebuild their nest in a much safer location.
I did not know about the nest tree being in a bad location. Thank you for that information.
