Bald Eagle #16-0038 is recovering quietly at the Wildlife Center. Dr. Dana reports that the eagle is perching, eating well, and mostly leaving her bandages alone, which can be an important component of the healing process!
On February 1, a mature Bald Eagle was found down on the ground in Stafford, Virginia. The bird was picked up by an animal control officer and taken to a local veterinary clinic before it was transferred to a permitted rehabilitator in the area.
On February 1, Bald Eagle #15-2199 was anesthetized for 35-day post-op radiographs on her leg. Radiographs indicated more complete bridging between the fractured bones; the IM pin was ready to be removed.
The goal of the Center is “to treat to release” – to restore patients to health and return as many as possible to the wild. In rare instances, the Center has the opportunity to track eagles after their release. Click here to follow these former eagle patients.
