A note about tomorrow's broadcast:
8:00 a.m.: The five young Bald Eagles that will be released tomorrow will be caught. The catch-up crew (same as the weigh-in crew) will be starting with the three Norfolk birds and then will be catching the two eagles in the other flight pen. As each bird is caught, it will be taken down to the hospital to be "bumpered" and placed into a transport crate. The "bumpering" is something that's done to keep the eagles' wrist areas padded and protected during transport.
The two eagles, #1714 and #1235, will be banded.
9:00 a.m.: Feed from the Wildlife Center cam to WVEC will stop.
11:00 a.m.: WVEC's live streaming of the release will begin [same website address]. DGIF Biologist Steve Living will be narrating the release.
WVEC's moderated discussion will continue throughout the remainder of the week.
And please join us ...
Thursday, July 28, 9:00 a.m.: The Wildlife Center will begin streaming the Wildlife Center Animal Cam. Please look for the "animal cam" link on the front page of the Wildlife Center's website at that time.
A moderated discussion will also be launched at that point, though likely minimal discussion will take place on Thursday/Friday as the WVEC discussion wraps up.
