We’re happy to announce both Bald Eagles survived Hurricane Irene that hit the Eastern US over the weekend. Both maps below can be clicked on to enlarge the image. Red circles indicate the hourly locations and the white arrow is the most recent location. The orange line is the estimated path between hourly locations.
I’m filling in for Reese temporarily. Post any questions in the comments section of the post and I’ll be glad to answer them. – Libby
Camellia hunkered down on the Lynnhaven River in Virginia Beach. Note the green tree icon designating the eagle’s natal territory at the Norfolk Botanical Gardens (upper left corner of the map). The blue arrow shows the location he weathered the storm all day Saturday – a stand of pines off Richardson Rd.
Azalea stayed put at the fish farms in North Carolina and appears to be flying and foraging normally.
