2 years of work to fly away this Sunday


This little lady came in over two years ago with high voltage burns on both feet and unable to fly more than a couple yards. With steroids, good food and a safe place to recuperate she will be hitting the open skies again this coming Sunday - wish her luck she has been a nice bird to rehab, a really classy lady, going to miss her.

NAB :-)

When she came in she was an adolescent now she's a grown up Golden Eagle and should get her golden cap this coming fall molt.

What a lucky bird to have found you.

I hope she has a long and wonderful life.

Thanks for sharing, Nab.

How beautiful! Since she was young when she was found and was kept for so long, do you think she'll be a little confused when she has to fend for herself again?

hunting skills are required before we release any bird, if they can't demonstrate good hunting skills they don't go until they can. For Raptors like her first we start with frozen mice, when they get the hang of the frozen ones then we move on to live white mice and when they have that down we move on to brown/gray field mice like would be found in the wild. Not much point in releasing a bird that is just going to starve, suffer and die either from starvation or at the hands of a coyote or wolf etc.

Fantastic job, nice looking eagle. I hope she lives a long and healthy life. Is there any way to keep an eye on her after release, just too make sure. I would hate to see any thing happen to her, my wife has a thing about eagles she just loves them. I'm going to show her this post. Have you any more pics?
Thanks, Dave
