This is a blog about Norfolk Botanical Garden banded Bald Eagle "HK," hatched in 2009. The photos and observations are mine unless otherwise indicated.
I hope you enjoy this story of HK's life along a golf course on the North Landing River. Please take a second and leave a comment, they are greatly appreciated.
HK Builds His Nest

HK and Sterling Getting Cozy
I was very excited to get a text message from my friend Barbara that there was an "eagle show" at the Osprey nest. Fortunately, the timing was perfect as I was on the way home from a dental appointment. Unfortunately, the weather was awful; 58 degrees, overcast, misty, and very windy.
When I drove up, HK was alone in the Osprey nest. But, before I could start shooting, here comes Sterling!
Sterling landed in the nest and settled in with HK (Sterling on the right).
HK hopped out to a corner of the tower.
And then hopped back in!
They spent a few minutes looking quite cozy and then departed.
