The Wildlife Center of Virginia admitted 167 patients in March 2012 – a marked increase over patient numbers in January (60 admissions) and February (46 admissions). March saw some unusual species come through the Center’s doors – like an American Toad found in Charlottesville, and an endangered Bog Turtle from Floyd County.

Bald Eagle #12-0001 was moved into a flight pen on March 31; the eagle is now currently residing in FP4. The rehab staff report that the bird is able to fly the length of the 45′ enclosure, and maintain height — though is a little wobbly and unbalanced on landings. This is likely due to lingering, possibly permanent, neurological damage caused by the lead toxicity. The staff will continue to monitor the eagle in the coming weeks in this larger space.
