Bald Eagle #22-0980 update

During the past two months, Bald Eaglet #22-0980 has continued to do well. By June 30, the eaglet was old enough to start making short flights and was given access to the entire A3 flight pen. Rehabilitation staff have been exercising the bird daily to help it build up its flight strength and stamina. The eaglet began with only 5-10 flight passes per day, but was increased to 10-15 flight passes on July 17. The rehabilitation team reports that the eaglet needs to improve its maneuvering and landings, but is otherwise flying well.
