Bald Eagle #19-1678 has been in the raptor tower portion of the A3 flight enclosure for the past week; though the doors of this balcony area were opened late last week, the young eaglet has not yet “fledged” from his nesting area.

Bald Eagle #19-1666 finished her course of oral lead treatment last week and had a follow-up blood draw and lead analysis test on June 29. Results came back “low”, indicating that the oral medication had successfully treated the small amount of lead in the bird’s system. The eagle was moved to the A3 flight pen on June 30, and joined fellow Bald Eagles #19-0031, #19-1013, and #19-1678.

The two Black Bear cubs are doing well in the Center’s Large Mammal enclosure; last week, the wildlife rehabilitation staff opened up the connecting chute between both sides of the enclosure, to allow the cubs to have access to both sides.

Construction crews have been working on Black Bear Complex repairs during the past month; they have been able to fix a broken pipe and several valves in the water system throughout the two-acre complex. There are still some additional plumbing issues to adjust in the next two weeks.
