Azalea – “I Am Still Eating Catfish”


Azalea – ” I arrived back here at the catfish ponds south of Roper and east of Plymouth, NC on April 14. This is my third time visiting these ponds. I first located some smaller ponds north and east of Roper on March 9th and then on March 15, 16 and 17 found these much larger ponds. They cover a few hundred acres along with some pasture land. I left on March 17 to make a trip back to Norfolk, but returned here near the Tidewater Research Station on March 25 and remained until April 6 when I again made a quick trip to Norfolk and Virginia Beach. Fishing is good here and I have the company of about 20 other bald eagles. Other than a brief flight into Bertie County near Merry Hill on April 18, which is just across the west end of Albemarle Sound, I have stayed right here. Each night I rest in a communal roost with other eagles that is in a patch of woods just southwest of these ponds. That is where I am at 7am April 27. This is my 14th day here on this visit.”

Oh my dear dear Azalea!! I am so glad you took the time to send us this message. You know, Reese has been so busy and I am sure he appreciates you doing this for him. I do hope that your brother and sister are with you and the three of you are having a wonderful time. Stay safe dear girl, soar in the thermals and always, always remember where you come from.

hey Azalea, I was down there on Thursday looking for you, from 6 am until around 7:45am, took some photos of ur friends, would like for someone to take a look to give me an idea of your coloring at this time of the year….brown or grayish?

I like catfish myself so can understand why you’re staying there.
