Camellia – banded NC – is testing his wings and learning what flying is all about. But eagles must also rest and in the shade on these warm days. In these photos from the web cam on June 2, Camellia sits directly below the camera and poses and shows off the solar panel on his satellite transmitter. It is very important that the transmitter fits properly so that it can receive sunlight. In these photos you can see that his feathers fit around the transmitter allowing the sun to shine on the solar panel so it can build up a charge to send signals to the satellite so his journey can be tracked.
