Azalea is near the Adam Thouroughgood House in Thoroughgood section of Virginia Beach at midnight Jan 3. I am going to look for her. More details later.
Well, Azalea wins again!! I arrived at 7:45am, at the exact spot where she was at midnight, but she had already flown the scene. I took a chance that she might return to Witchduck, where she was on Jan 2 and where she has spent several nights lately. Also, photographer Jim Deal got a look at Azalea there yesterday. As I arrived, a juvenile was being chased away by two adults. Was it Azalea? I don’t know. The juvie did not return. All was not lost, however. The two adults put on a flying spectactular for the next 30 minutes, dipping, diving and screaming. On New Years day, Jim Deal and I located a new eagle nest just a short distance from there. It is likely those two eagles that were putting on the show.
