O THANK YOU WVEC! Smile

Watch Norfolk eaglets return to the wild online or in person
3 young eagles will be returned to the wild later this month and you can join wildlife officials to say goodbye and good luck.

The three were removed from their nest at Norfolk Botanical Garden in late April after their mother was killed by a plane landing at Norfolk International Airport.

They've been cared for at The Wildlife Center of Virginia in Waynesboro and people around the world have watched their progress on the WVEC.com Eaglecam.

"Today the three are healthy, can fly, and are ready to go back into the wild – free and on their own," said President Ed Clark.

The release will occur Wednesday, July 27 at 11:00 a.m. at historic Berkeley Plantation on the James River between Williamsburg and Richmond.

Officials say the plantation provides eagle-friendly habitat and is just across the river from the James River National Wildlife Refuge – 4,200 acres of protected land that hosts one of the largest Bald Eagle roosts on the East Coast.

The event is free and open to the public, but officials ask that your RSVP so they know how many people to expect.

"Based on the RSVPs we’ve received to date, we’re expecting folks from 24 states and Canada to be attending the eagle release," Center spokesman Randy Huwa told WVEC.com.

Officials stress you should be prepared for hot weather by dressing in light clothes, wear a hat, sunscreen and bring something to drink, like water.

One of the eaglets will be released just after 12 noon. That will be shown live on 13News @ Noon with reporter/anchor Joe Flanagan reporting live.
WVEC.com is planning to stream the release of all three eaglets beginning at 11:00 a.m.

WCV to Attach Transmitter to one of these 3 Bald Eaglets
The Wildlife Center of Virginia will be attaching a transmitter  to one of the three Bald Eagles being released on July 27th.
The transmitter will allow VDGIF eagle biologists, Wildlife Center staff, and visitors to the Wildlife Center’s website to track the eagle’s travels for up to two years.

They plan to put the transmitter on the 2nd hatched female NX, the quietest of the 3.

July  20,  2011   Wednesday  dawn
This is a GREAT and encouraging sight!  


WCV put live trout in the 2 bath tubs in the pen last nite.
This morning, Not only does NX get the fish out, she keeps it from her thieving little brother!  She WILL survive!  She is the one WCV will put a tranmitter tracker on.
Eagles in the wild 'mantle'  -  hunch their wings over their food to guard it and threaten others away.
I have NOT seen these 3 do this mantling until this morning

NBG Eaglets, Tuesday July 19
WCV gave eaglets 8 live fish, 4 in each tub.  The eaglets will get the general idea of where fish come from and how they should catch them.
The WCV typically provides live prey testing for all raptors prior to release.
The most difficult part of “fish school” is finding ones large enough for the eagles to hunt – while keeping the fish alive!  
Fortunately, eagles eat a lot of carrion as well – which doesn’t require any hunting skills.

WCV to Attach Transmitter to Bald Eagle
Q and A here

http://www.wildlifecenter.org/wp/2011/07/transmitter-bald-eagle


OVER  1,000  ARE EXPECTED TO ATTEND the RELEASE
July  20,  2011   Wednesday weigh-in, blood and feather check
Preparing our 3 friends for release into the wild.
NX did NOT want Dr. Miranda to catch her!  
She has realized high on her perch swing, she cant be reached!  
Very funny to watch Miranda jump to make her fly, and finally grabbing the rope to un-perch NX.

NX caught the first fish put in tub in their pen
NX found out how to resist capture
NX is the one who will be fitted with a transmiter July 27

5 eagles to be released July 27  instead of 3

Quintuple Eagle Release

For the first time in its nearly 30-year history, the Wildlife Center of Virginia will be releasing five Bald Eagles at a single event.  
All of these eagles hatched earlier this year.
Most friends of the Wildlife Center were already anticpating a triple eagle release on July 27 – the three young eagles from Norfolk Botanical Gardens.
These eagles have been at the Wildlife Center since April 27.  
More details here

                  ---------------------------

The LIVE stream was awful.  I was so frustrated and disappointed.
WVEC had these videos on their website later in the day.

Video of area Berkeley prior to release
Berkeley is beautiful, perfect for eagles - and humans!  They have tours.

Video of NX released

Botanical Garden eagles released at Berkeley Plantation
1,200 guests from 22 states and Ontario, Canada had RSVP'd to be at Berkeley Plantation for their release.
Just before they were released NX -  one of the eagles was outfitted with a transmitter so researchers can track her for two years.
http://www.wvec.com/my-city/norfolk/Big--126197853.html?qq


BULLETIN
One eaglet failed to launch

NX, the eagle fitted with a transmitter, is being returned to the WCV for a little extra preparation time.
NX is not injured and flying mechanics were good, but she wasn't gaining enough altitude on two flight attempts.  She was hot and tired.
http://www.wvec.com/my-city/norfolk/Big--126197853.html?mb


On the blog in the evening, Ed Clark and Amanda, WCV staff, said NX was crabby.  
She'd spent too long in the van, was handled too much, was too angry ( angry birds! ), and when Ed was asked who she bit, he replied - she bit everyone she could!  Laughing
The transmitter is NOT the problem, but all the handling involved and her bad temper exhausted her.
She should be fine to release after a few days rest back in her familiar cage.

Nixy's Travels, Tracking an eagle called NX
The last of the 3 NBG eagles will be released tomorrow Aug. 30th.
She has a transmitter and will be tracked.

Hurricane Irene plowed thru Norfolk, Virginia the past week, downing trees.
Hurricane Irene roared through Norfolk Botanical Garden destroying over a dozen large, mature trees, many smaller trees and leaving behind lots of debris.  
Here are some photos that give a small indication of the damage that occurred during the hurricane.

2012  EAGLE NESTING SEASON begins at Norfolk Botanical Garden  ( NBG )  VIRGINIA

Now I will have to start a NBG 2012 nest thread!

September  24,  2011   Saturday
NBG photographer Duane saw 'Dad' in the 2008 nest tree
Some other photogs also think they have seen Dad with another eagle the past couple weeks.
I suspect Dad will NOT build in the 2011 nest.  MOST likely because it needs a year to become free of parasites.
2012  NESTING SEASON may soon begin at Norfolk Botanical Garden  ( NBG )  VIRGINIA

NX was struck by a car in December and taken back to WCV

Norfolk Botanical Gardens and area local photographers
Photographers sites are fantastic for aging bald eagles.  They show NBG offspring at each age.
Colorings and markings vary a great deal.
