Azalea Still At Tidewater Research Station March 31

2010033120100331_zoom

I have posted two satellite maps this time to illustrate how Azalea has remained in a very small area since arriving at the Tidewater Research Station near Plymouth, NC. She has returned each night to a patch of forest just south of the fields and fish ponds she has been visiting. During the time period of this map March 28 at 7pm and March 31 at 3pm she never left the station. The Tidewater Research Station is on 1,558 acres of which 840 acres are woodland, 428 acres in cropland, 195 acres in pasture, 65 acres in buildings, roads, etc and 30 acres in ponds. Of the 30 acres there are 18 quarter-acre ponds with research focused on yellow perch, striped bass and most recently tilapia. It is of course these fish pond that has captured the attention of Azalea and other visiting bald eagles. You can read more about the research station at the Tidewater Research Station page: www.ncagr.gov/research/trs.htm.

Our Azalea is one smart cookie. Thanks so much for the update, Reese! Wish I could see her again. Are you aware of any sightings and perhaps photos posted anywhere of her recently?

Reese I am so happy our Diva AZ is still in NC. I appreciate so much all your updates on her.
Maybe someday our Eaglet NC =(North Carolina) will join her big sister here as well. lol
I do hope she finds a nice place here to settle.
