Bald Eaglets #14-0867, 14-0649, and 14-0650 were successfully released at the Chincoteague National Wildlife refuge on Wednesday, August 20.
On August 17, Bald Eagle #14-0649 flew into the ceiling of the flight pen during exercise, causing a laceration to its scalp and loss of feathers.
Great Horned Owlets #14-0255 and #14-0404 are becoming more and more independent from their Great Horned Owl surrogate Papa G’Ho. At this point in their development, young owls begin to start taking interest in live prey, but are not hunting and catching larger prey on their own.
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.
