Bald Eagle #17-0109 update

On Monday, February 27, Bald Eagle #17-0127 was re-tested for lead, which is the Center’s protocol for birds that have gone through chelation therapy. In birds with chronic lead toxicity, lead can be absorbed into a raptor’s bones, and, over time, the lead can leach back out into the bird’s system. Lead test results came back at a level of 0.3 ppm, which warrants treatment.
