Bald Eagle #23-0710 [K62] Release

On September 5, Wildlife Center President Ed Clark released Bald Eagle #23-0710 [K62] back into the wild at the Berkeley Plantation in Charles City, Virginia.  A crowd of about 80 people attended the release, including Marina Pierce, the wildlife photographer who originally found the downed bird. Linda, one of the Center's supporters, reports that the eagle "came out of the crate feisty and ready to be released!! She flew fast [toward the James River] then banked to the left and disappeared behind the trees."
