subadult-release1January 2017. This sub-adult male Bald Eagle had been found in a field, unable to fly. A thorough examination and x-rays revealed the eagle had several wing fractures. Thankfully, two of the fractures were well aligned and had already started to mend. A wrap was placed to immobilize the wings and allow the bones to continue healing correctly. After plenty of cage rest, the fractures had healed enough to allow the eagle to be moved into outdoor caging. Once outside, the eagle was able to stretch his wings and start to regain his flight strength. After flight time and exercise to rebuild his strength and stamina, this eagle was ready to return the wild, healthy and flying strong!
