Bald Eagle #22-3464 update

During the past couple of months, Bald Eagle #22-3464 has continued to slowly heal in the Center’s A3 flight enclosure. The bird’s left elbow wound, noted at her admission in October, has proven quite challenging to treat, but slowly and steadily, the veterinary team has seen improvement during regular treatments and checks. By May 10, the elbow wound finally appeared that it has healed; a thick, secure scab was present, and the veterinary team finally was able to stop bandaging the bird’s wing.

The eagle is living in the main portion of the A3 flight enclosure with several other Bald Eagles and will spend the next few months regrowing flight feathers and building strength in the atrophied muscle of her left wing.
