[Total: 0    Average: 0/5] You must sign in to vote MARCH 2015 UPDATE: It’s now known that the female that is with Dad Norfolk is actually his daughter, banded with the letters HE. She is one of Dad & Mom Norfolk’s offspring from the 2009 nest. Photographers on the ground have observed behavior that suggests Dad and HE have eaglets. FEBRUARY 2015 UPDATE: It appears Dad Norfolk is no longer mated to DT. The female seen at the new nest is banded. DT was not banded. It will be interesting to find out where this female is from.

(NBG) 2004: The pair of Eagles raised two Eaglets during the ’04 nesting season. Both of them fledged on May 31st. The adults remained in the Garden. 2005: In November, NBG teamed with WVEC TV and the […]

    Thank you for a beautiful video. LEAVE THESE EAGLES ALONE!!! They are territorial and they will not leave the area. Other birds in the area are a far greater threat to air traffic than two eagles, and there are mitigation techniques the airport could use to keep them away from the runway..
