On 10 February, Kay texted me that our partner rehabilitator, Wildthunder WARS had a juvenile eagle that may need transport.
The “Eldorado” (pronounced El-doe-RAY-doe) eagle transferred from Wildthunder is a HY17 and the blood lead level test was HI. Thanks to Fayette County Conservation staff for rescuing from outside the community of Eldorado on IA-150 and getting to Wildthunder.
This young eagle could not keep food or even fluids.
