Ed Clark, Co-founder and President of the Wildlife Center, drove Bald Eagle #20-3608 to the Eastern Shore of Virginia for release on March 24. He was met by a small group of people that initially helped rescue this bird.
Ed reported back to other Center staff about the release saying, “When I finally launched him, he exploded out of my arms and flew more forcefully than any eagle I have ever released; he took off like a rocket!! He flew without any suggestion of lingering wing issues, and just kept going until he was out of sight! There is no question in my mind that he was back to 100%.”
