One of the three nestlings in the bald eagle nest in Virginia Beach has fledged as of June 9, 2014. The sibling of “MR” was seen today soaring with its parents over the Lynnhaven River at Witchduck. This photo was taken by Woody Stephens.
I visited the nest site this morning and found “MR” and one sibling in the nest tree. I could not find the third eaglet. Thanks to Woody Stephens we now know why. The other sibling is now a fledgling.
Here is “MR” looking at me over her shoulder this morning.
Here is the sibling still in the nest tree this morning.
