RICHMOND, Va. - One of the most popular shows in Richmond is taking a hiatus.

The folks who aimed a camera at a nesting pair of eagles and attracted a huge following earlier this year say eagles Virginia and James have left their nest along the James River for a more secluded spot. Eagle expert Bryan Watts tells the Richmond Times-Dispatch ( he's scouting other nests and locations between Richmond and Hopewell.

That means eagle cam will be dark until 2014. Eagles mate and nest in winter.

The Eagle Cam was a project of the Richmond Times-Dispatch and the Center for Conservation Biology, a research and education group.

Virginia and James logged more than 1.5 million page views from more than 120 countries during its run.
