August 2013 I emailed NBG to ask if donations are off.
People should NOT punish the beautiful gardens for what the airport did to our eagles.
They replied -

Thank you so much for your interest in the Garden.
We are sure there are a number of eagle fans that have decided to not renew their membership and we are no longer receiving major donations for the eagle cam.  However, we still do have many eagle fans that visit the Garden for a hope of a glimpse of DAD eagle who we do site periodically.  
The eagle cam was a wonderful education program that is missed by many including NBG staff and
we appreciate the time we had with the eagle family.  

Thanks again for your support of our beautiful garden.  Cathy

Tracking NX
November 21, 2014  NX checked in from King George County, near Chestnut Hill VA.  This location is just about two-and-a-half miles from her check-in spot three weeks ago.

In general, a Bald Eagle’s daily activity depends on the age of the bird and the season.  According to the Birds of North America online, some studies suggest that immature eagles only spend about two to five percent of each day [24 hour period] in flight.  More than half of their time is spent roosting, and about a third of their time is spent perching.

Nixy survives and is still phoning home
4-year-old Nixy is doing well!  70% of eaglets dont survive their first year, Nixy is making it, despite having no parents to learn from.

August 17, 2015  The Virginian-Pilot
Whatever Happened to NX, the eagle rescued from its nest at the Norfolk Botanical Garden.
The blips on computer maps show NX survives and is still phoning home.
No one has actually seen her since May 2012.

3 eaglets became wildlife stars after their mother was killed in a 2011 collision with a plane.
Rescued from their nest at Norfolk Botanical Garden, reared by the Wildlife Center of Virginia, NX was outfitted with a solar charging tracking device which relays GPS signals.
NX has pretty much remained in Virginia.

4 year old Nixy might have a boyfriend!
She needs to continue Mom n Dad Norfolks line!
At 5 years old, NX will be mature enough to mate. Some females mate at age 4.  Her head and tail feathers have surely turned white - the trademarks of an adult bald eagle.
Calling all photographers!!!!!

Happy anniversary, NX, she is 4 years old
May 16, 2016
 Today is the 4 year anniversary of NX's 2012 release at Rappahannock River Valley National Wildlife Refuge.  To celebrate, NX checked in a day early!  As of May 15, Bald Eagle NX was in Maryland, at Chapel Point State Park in Charles County. According to their website, "Chapel Point State Park is located on the beautiful Tobacco River, a tributary of the Potomac River.

At this point, Nixy definitely has many white head feathers growing in.
