LATEST UPDATE:

30 June 2012
After consulting with other rehabilitators with baby eagle experience, it was determined that when he was flying in the flight pen with ease, we needed to do a soft release. This meant setting up a feeding station on the roof of the adults pen. He could still see and hear the adults and he would have food available, if needed. The young eagle had been easily navigating the flight pen and was time for a pre-release exam. The exam indicated the eagle was healthy, fully feathered, and weighed in at 7.25 lbs. Released at SOAR!

As with all the care provided for this young eagle, this release was planned with his best interest in mind and, it was done to try and minimize any human influence on this still growing bird... low stress and near easy food sources of ponds, creeks, and rivers... several of which are drying up and makes for easy fishing.
