Grace the bald eagle fledged her nest with her two siblings in June 2014. We expect her to explore the Chesapeake Bay and northern North Carolina like previously tracked eagles from this region of Virginia. The eagle Saw Pen is also from this nest but hatched in 2012.
The name Grace was chosen by the public in honor of Grace Sherwood for whom the local name Witchduck refers to in Virginia Beach. The eagle nest is near Witchduck Road
