On March 21, an immature female Bald Eagle was found down in Virginia Beach. The bird was captured and taken to the Virginia Beach SPCA for treatment; a veterinarian at the SPCA found an open fracture of the bird's right wing. The wing was wrapped, the bird was given fluids and pain medications, and a transporter drove the eagle to the Wildlife Center that same day.
On March 21, an adult female Bald Eagle was found down in Virginia Beach (Fort Story) and was taken to Nature's Nanny Wildlife Rehabilitation. Permitted wildlife rehabilitator Dana Lusher examined the eagle and noted a fracture at the tip of the bird's right wing; Dana wrapped the wing and made arrangements for transport to the Wildlife Center of Virginia that same day.
On March 13, an adult Canada Goose was rescued from the Charlottesville, VA area after a private citizen suspected it had a broken leg. The goose was transported to the Wildlife Center on the same day and was admitted as patient #17-0232.
Broad-winged Hawk #16-2175 spent the winter resting and healing at the Center. On March 3, the hawk was moved to a larger flight pen to begin daily exercise and flight conditioning in preparation for release this spring. Broad-winged Hawk patients aren't released before April 1; the rehabilitation staff is conditioning the hawk now so she can be prepared for release as soon as possible.
