Wow, 6 years. Amazing how much time has passed. This was also one of the best webcams and nests and I miss it very much also.

HK from 2009 .... hoping he can recover!!  Sad

Amidst much interest and fanfare, we admitted one of Virginia "famous" eagles this afternoon. Fortunately, the prognosis on this bird seems to be pretty good. "HK" a male eagle hatch in 2009, in the nest that used to be located in the Norfolk Botanical Gardens, was apparently hit by a car this morning. Fortunately, local animal control officers and volunteer rescuers got to him quickly. Certified Wildlife Rehabilitator Harley Thomas White, took the injured eagle to Midway Veterinary Hospital, where Dr. Tony Poutous examined the bird and stabilized him for transport to the Wildlife Center. News of this bird's injury spread like wildfire, even before he got to the Center, we were getting bombarded with questions about his condition. The bird was thoroughly examined, shortly after Tommy got him there. We found that Dr. Poutous had expertly identified the bird's primary injuries--a broken right leg and some generalized internal trauma. Our vet team is very optimistic that the leg fracture can be repaired surgically. So, the prognosis is pretty good, unless some of the internal injuries turn out to be more than they appear to be now. This is one very lucky bird, to have survived the collision and to have had so many people, ready willing and able to help.

Thank you Patti for bringing this news to us. I do hope it recovers. This is the other nest/cam that I really miss. I wonder if they were successful in getting the eagles away from the airport vicinity after all.

That's great Patti. I did just wonder if their efforts to move eagles along and away from the airport was worth it in the end, or if the eagles are still nesting close by. It was such a sad time.
