Bald Eagle #18-2865 update

On November 2, Bald Eagle #18-2865 was moved to flight pen A3 for continued recovery and to start exercise. The eagle’s wounds have healed well and the bird is eating. The eagle still does not hold her talons normally on her left foot, though this is not causing her any issues with perching, flying, or eating; the veterinary team believes that this is an old injury not related to her cause of admission.

The rehabilitation team started the eagle on daily exercise; the eagle is able to fly, though has poor stamina and needs to improve on maneuverability and gaining height while flying.
