Exclamation An appeal to this bird community..Please!!

I know this is not where I should be to post this, but knowing we are all bird lovers.....I'm not sure how many of us watch any of the many "bird cams" and if anyone is familiar with the eaglet family at the Norfolk Botanical Gardens in Virginia. The bald eagle nest there recently had a horrible tragedy. 3 weeks ago the mother eagle was struck and killed by an airplane while fishing with her mate to feed her 3 eaglets. It was decided that the father would not be able to take care of his babies (even though he tried), they were removed and taken to the Wildlife Center of Virginia and will be released sometime in August. The center built a nest and put up a cam to watch 24/7....and the moderators are still answering questions every day. My plea to all who appreciate all of the wonderful people involved with the care of these babies (and to other wonderful wildlife) to go to Chase Community Giving on Facebook and vote for both Wildlife Center of Virginia and Norfolk Botanical Gardens!! Please also visit their has been so very sad, but heart warming as well. The dad eagle did return to his empty nest several times (can be viewed on YouTube) but has been seen everyday doing his "eagle thing" and the babies have grown and are doing great. Thank you to all the bird loving community!!! Hurry to ends in a couple of days!!!
