Yes, it’s a satellite dish!

From Tania - Wonderful! Thank you so much!

I am a supporter from Upstate NY and I am so happy that I was able to view this video on the Eagles! I intend to watch more of the episodes as they become available. Thank you Ed Clark for all that you do and all the people helping the animals at the Wildlife Center of Virginia!. I was made aware of your Wildlife center when the unfortunate intervention had to be done from losing Mom Norfolk to a plane crash and the three eaglets ( the superstars) needed to be raised at your center.
