Bald Eagle #21-0214 has been recovering very well during the past month. The rehabilitation staff have continued exercising the bird each day, and report that it is consistently flying more than 15 passes of the enclosure, displays proper form and stamina while in flight, and is in good overall physical condition. The veterinary staff estimate that this eagle may be a suitable candidate for release within the next few weeks.
For now, though, the rehabilitation staff will pause the eagle's physical conditioning to accommodate Bald Eagle #21-0677's need to discontinue exercising for the time being, as exercising a specific patient in an enclosure with multiple individuals is not always possible.
Center staff will keep a close eye on Bald Eagle #21-0214 during the coming weeks, and hope to prepare this patient for release in the near future.
