I just went to check out the “Eagle Cam” that is set up at the Norfolk Botanical Gardens on an active nest. This is really cool and several school groups were checking it out for education. What a great idea. Speaking of great ideas, Virginia State Parks are one of the best interactive classrooms you can go to. Our parks have great environmental educators on site ready to take classes out to learn, or perform interpretive programs for visitors. There are several parks along the Bay that have active Bald Eagle nests and large populations to view. While working at Mason Neck I had the luck of doing an Eagle count from a blind as they came off their roost for the night. In about an hours time, I counted 35 Bald Eagles. Wow, what a treat for a bird lover. Mason Neck has a great guided canoe trip up Kane’s Creek during parts of the year that will give you a great chance to see this majestic bird up close, along with other wildlife.
