Bald Eagle #14-0261 remained in her C-pen throughout most of August while several other young eagles were conditioned for release in the large flight pens. Every two weeks, the veterinary staff rechecked the eagle’s bloodwork and performed feet and feather checks.
During the week of September 8, Peregrine Falcon #14-1319 finished the course of antibiotics for her eye injury.
Bald Eaglets #14-1767 and #14-1903 were successfully released in Northampton County at Kiptopeke State Park on Friday, September 12. The weather at the release site was overcast and cool with a slight breeze—perfect conditions for a Bald Eagle release.
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.
