STAFFORD (AP) -- A bald eagle rescued from its nest in Norfolk after a plane hit its mother has found a new home in Stafford County.

The eagle, called NX, is one of three that were taken from their nest at Norfolk Botanical Gardens in April 2011. She was released in August 2011. The others released the previous month.

In December 2011, she was found along a road in Northumberland County and taken back to the Wildlife Center of Virginia in Waynesboro. She was released again in May 2012.

Executive vice president Randy Huwa tells The Free Lance-Star that the wildlife center decided to track NX after her second release because of her unusual life.

She's now living in Widewater along the northeastern edge of Stafford County.

You can track her movements through The Wildlife Center of Virginia Website.
