Event to honor eagle's memory in Norfolk

NORFOLK

Native American drum group Four Rivers Drum will play a memorial concert Sunday in honor of the Norfolk Botanical Garden's female bald eagle that was killed Tuesday. The event will be 10:30 a.m. in the Matson Garden area at the garden, 6700 Azalea Garden Road.

The bird died after being struck by aircraft heading into the Norfolk International Airport. Three eaglets that remained in the nest were later moved by biologists to the Wildlife Center of Virginia. Scientists were concerned the male bald eagle would be unable to keep up with the baby birds' care.

During the ceremony, the first performance will be an "Eagle Calling Song" followed by memorial songs to the female eagle and other selections to honor the male eagle which still lives in the area.

"It seems appropriate that we as Native American people should pay honor to the eagle family that resided in our midst," event coordinator Vincent Schilling said in a news release. In Native American culture, the eagle is believed to be a messenger of prayers, the release said.

The event is open to the public and is included with garden admission. For info, visit www.norfolkbotanicalgarden.org

 

She deserves it and it's nice of them to pay tribute.  Sad

Exactly, right, Shaky!

What a touching tribute for mama eagle.  Very respectful.  Her life and her passing should be noted

Center of Virginia's website: Junior was illegally taken from his nest in 1984 at an early age. At about age six months, he escaped his captors [or was released] and was found walking down a road in Merced, California, wearing jesses. His feathers were broken and shredded, suggesting that he had been kept in a wire cage. His feather condition left him unable to fly, and he was admitted to a wildlife rehabilitation facility for treatment, where it was determined that Junior had become imprinted on humans during his time in captivity. Junior came to the Wildlife Center in March 1985. Though his ability to fly has been restored, his imprinted status precludes his release into the wild.

I was just reading that-interesting that the youngest has lead in his blood.  Hopefully the level will be down soon...

The eaglets were just weighed and NV had another blood test...

"Ed Clark, WCV:
Okay, some news----good news at that. They have already run the blood test on NV. His blood lead level has dropped to "low" which is a big improvement. The testing equipment can still detect some lead, but at levels too low to measure and quantify. That was part of the goal of the day. No treatment for this condition will be required. "

Excellent news!
