Bringing a big sigh of relief, we now know thankfully that it WAS NOT Dad Norfolk’s new mate killed at the airport Jan 28! Dad Norfolk and his mate (known as DT or Dirty Tail) were spotted together today! While a loss of any eagle is tragic, it is good to know that it wasn’t her and that this pair is intact, together and still flying free! It also shows that harassing eagles at the gardens did NOT prevent an eagle / airplane encounter at the the airport. We can only hope that the sacrifice of the female eagle who died on the runway will help to further the powers that be, to see that there are better alternatives for keeping runways safe than harassing one pair of eagles in a neighboring garden.
