Azalea Remains in Northumberland County

Azalea has been doing a lot of flying the past three days, but all within Northumberland County. She has circled around the eastern portion of the Northern Peninsula near Burgess and Ophelia, Va at the mouth of the Potomac River where it empties into the Chesapeake Bay at Smith Point, and around Little Wicomoco River. As of this map at 1:00am Sept 18 she is spending the night  in a patch of woods near the intersection of US Route 360 and VA Route 652 north of Reedville. – white arrow.


Interesting thought but, could it be that Azalea and NX (the 2011 NBG eaglet) are hanging out together? Even though they came from the same nest (not at the same time of course), they probably could be hanging out and not even know that they are sisters.

Cool nonetheless.

Still so cool that she loves my neck of Va. So neat that both sisters are this way st the same time. That whole area is made for eagles and fish-eating wildlife. The waterways there aren’t deep so Azalea has no problem getting her flounder and other rich fish. The menhaden come close up into that area also.

She’s a smart one and we welcome the sisters to this beautiful area. .Reece– thanks for the update.order
