Bald Eagle has a Chance to Return to the Skies

A bald eagle gets a thorough examination to determine the extent of her injuries. Story and photo by NIWRA.

This beautiful mature bald eagle was found on the ground and unable to fly.


After arriving at the Centre she was anesthetized so that a proper examination and radiographs could be performed.


Thankfully there were no fractures, but there was some soft tissue damage to one wing. Her body condition was not great, suggesting she might have been on the ground for an extended period of time.


Now that she is here at NIWRA we will help her build back up strength and body condition before assessing her flight and determining if she can be released.
