Warren is eating well. Suspecting an issue with the left coracoid or scapula (shoulder blade) as eagle is hesitant to open that wing, can feel no fractures or swelling.

Deb was able to transport this eagle to SOAR today ahead of the impending winter weather. By this time the eagle was standing. During Kay's initial exam, noticed some blood in the trachea and is holding the left wing slightly forward, no fractures. Best news... no elevated lead levels in this 8 pound male.
