On Wednesday, July 27 the Wildlife Center of Virginia will release three Bald Eagles who were rescued from their nest in late April after their mother was struck and killed by a plane at the Norfolk airport.
The eagle release will be held at 11:00 a.m. at the historic Berkeley Plantation, on the James River below Richmond. The plantation itself provides eagle-friendly habitat and is just across the river from the James River National Wildlife Refuge—4,200 acres of protected land that hosts one of the largest Bald Eagle roosts on the East Coast.
The event is free and open to the public. The full story of the eagles is online at www.wildlifecenter.org/wp/2011-norfolk-botanical-garden-eaglets.
