I'm afraid I never found time to make a complete webpage
for the Norfolk nest - the following are a few pics
from my week-in-review and week-by-week pages.

There are lots of great pictures in the
Maine Eagle Forum thread on the Norfolk Eagles

Please check it out!

Unless there's news other than that the eaglets are still visiting the nest
and they look about the same, this is the final update for the Norfolk nest.

“It's Been Fun”

The season is drawing to a close. On July 15th the barriers erected at the Norfolk Botanical Garden were dismantled. These barriers created a perimeter around the nest tree, ensuring that the Eagles weren't disturbed. Now that the young are growing increasingly independent the barriers are no longer necessary. The camera feed has been disconnected for this season. Be sure to check in for next years Eagle Cam.

The adults will have some additional work next season, as a portion of the nest has fallen away. This is not uncommon as Bald Eagle nest can grow quite massive. The juvenile female has continued to use the nest as a roost and feeding platform. The adults have grown less and less responsive to her calls for food and she'll soon have to fend entirely for herself. Observers have noted her successfully fishing.

So Long & Thanks For All The Fish
