Bald Eagle #20-0172 update

Bald Eagle #20-0172 is recovering well under the diligent care of the hospital staff. Dr. Karra has noted that the eagle's wounds are healing well, with scabbing on the pectoral puncture wounds. The lead levels in the eagle's blood have dropped from .008 to .0059 parts per million. Dr. Karra also pointed out that the bird remains "BARF" (Bright, Alert, Responsive, and Feisty) which is the ideal behavior and condition for an eagle. 

On March 25, #20-0172 was moved outside. This means that the bird's recovery is going well and that the healing process can continue outdoors in our more spacious C-pens.
