Today marks one-week since the eaglets arrived at the Center -- and life as we know it changed! All three eaglets are doing well today. There seems to be some "playing" in between naps -- the eaglets appear to be enjoying some sticks and feathers that were added to the nest after it was cleaned yesterday.
Today has been a frustrating day at the Wildlife Center. Earlier this morning, it was discovered that Bald Eagle #11-207 "self-released". The limb of a tree outside the enclosure apparently damaged the specialized fabric used for the walls of the 85-foot-long cage where #11-207 was housed. Taking advantage of the tear in the side wall, the eagle squeezed through the hole in the fabric and performed what the Center calls a “self-release”. Please read the additional information here.
