New Bobble Head

All day today the mom eagle at Norfolk Botanical Gardens has been restless and looking down at the nest a great deal. At 1:10 PM EST she got off the nest and visible in the front of her was half of an empty egg shell. The eaglet isn't really visible, but you can see some gray fluff just behind the shell.

Since then she has gotten off the nest several times and the young eaglet is visible in the the nest. She is still very attentive to the activity underneath her. There are still two more eggs to hatch, but it may take several days as they are younger.

There is a short video of the event at the VDGIF/Norfolk Botanical Gardens Eagle Blog
