Baby Eagles Released Today
A mother bald eagle was killed in April by a jet at Norfolk International Airport. Biologists did not believe the father eagle would be able to bring enough food for the 3 baby eaglets, so at 5 months old the babies were taken from their nest at Norfolk Botanical Gardens to Virginia Wildlife Center. The eaglets were taught to fly, and interact with other eagles at the center. They will be released today at a ceremony that is expected to draw a large crowd. Through video the eaglets became a web sensation, and have a large fan base. From The Washington Post.
