Azalea has again flown over new territory, but also settled into something of a routine. She is spending less and less time near the nest. At night she is roosting at the dump area, but not always in the same tree. She is making morning visits to the nest and afternoon soaring flights over the area. Two new locations during her flights were July 31 at 2:00pm she was over Camellia Shores across Lake Whitehurst (data point to the left on map), and on August 2 at 2:00pm she was over Waterford Apartments near Shore Drive and the northwest edge of Little Creek Reservior (far right data point). During this time there have been no sightings of either HE or HK, and it appears that only one of the adults – female – is still here.
