Bald Eaglet #18-1139 update

Bald Eaglet #18-1139 has been flying well during the past week; the young eagle has gained more stamina, and while he’s a little stubborn during some exercise sessions, the quality of his flight is good. The rehab team is now able to get the eagle to fly about 15 times perch-to-perch during each exercises session.

Wildlife rehabilitator Brie reached out to state eagle biologist Jeff Cooper about the possibility of a GPS transmitter; Jeff has a unit for the eaglet, and just needs to coordinate an appropriate date for fitting the unit on the eaglet as he gets close to release.
