Bald Eagle #16-1664 update

Bald Eagle #16-1664 has been doing well in one of the Center’s outdoor enclosures during the past week. The bird is able to get to high perches, is holding both wings appropriately, and is eating well.

During the next few weeks, Center veterinarians will re-evaluate the eagle’s left carpal (“wrist”) joint to see if the bird is able to fly in a larger space. At this point, the veterinarians know that the bird is unable to extend his left wing fully, due to the compromised joint.
