This song tells the story of the three Norfolk bald eaglets that hatched at Norfolk Botanical Gardens in March of 2011. They lost their mother in April of 2011 and were moved to the Wildlife Center of Virginia where they are being raised to be released into the wild. The song is sung by local children with keyboards played by professional musician Andy Calabrese. The artist, Sherry Widmer, has been an avid eagle watcher for most of her life and became fascinated by the eaglecam at Norfolk Botanical Gardens. The artist will be donating a portion of the proceeds from the digital sales to the Norfolk Botanical Gardens and the Wildlife Center of Virginia.

Watch the eaglets on the online eaglecam!
