On February 22, Wildlife Center rehabilitator Leighann Cline, rehabilitation intern Jordan Herring, and several rehabilitation externs released the Black Vulture in Nelson County at Rockfish Gap.
Bald Eagle #15-2406 was released today at Chippokes Plantation State Park in Surry County, Virginia.
Red-tailed Hawk #15-0021 continues to surprise the staff with her progress and improvements. The bird is perching well and eating whole food, and the veterinary team has also noted that the bird’s harsh lung sounds have slowly improved.
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.
