Bald Eagle #17-1454 update

On Sunday, June 18, Center staff were startled to find that Bald Eagle #17-1454 had fractured its right humerus; Dr. Ernesto is unsure how this occurred since the eagle is housed in an airline crate and not able to fly or flap. Blood was drawn to send to an outside laboratory for analysis; the wing was wrapped carefully and the bird started on a course of pain medication.
