Bald Eagle #20-0994 update

Bald Eagle #20-0994 has been flying well during daily exercise sessions during the past two weeks. The eagle recovered its stamina and is able to gain lift and maintain height during flight. The staff will schedule a pre-release examination and blood work analysis this week to determine if the eagle is ready to be released. If Dr. Karra determines that the eagle is ready, she will likely release the eagle on Friday, July 31. The release will not be open to the public due to public safety with regard to the COVID-19 pandemic, though stay tuned to Facebook Live to participate in the release!
