Bald Eaglets update

Bald Eaglets #19-1678 and #19-1013 have been doing well in flight pen A3 this summer. Both started exercise on July 31, and quickly advanced to the optimum level of exercise; both birds are flying at least 15 passes perch-to-perch during their daily exercise. Wildlife rehabilitator Kelsey will assess the young eaglets this week to see if the team can start thinking about a release later this month. Once the eagles are flying and maneuvering appropriately, Kelsey will reach out to the state eagle biologist to see if he can band the birds prior to release; he may also have available GPS transmitters for the eagles.
