Fairfax County, Virginia
Rodes Farm residents, Henri and Elaine Weems got a rare treat Saturday afternoon. There were on hand as three bald eagles were released in Northern Virgina. A crowd of 300-500 folks looked on during the first triple release of eagles at Mason Neck State Park in Fairfax County, Virginia. You’ve seen many of the beautiful local Nelson photos Henri and Elaine have shared before.

The second of three eagles takes flight after release Saturday afternoon.
