Crusher Update

The mid-August juvenile bald eagle admit that was found in a rock and gravel crusher (hence her creative name!) is doing very well! She has graduated from a small room where she could spread her wings and hop up to low perches to the 60′ flight pen. All her toes are in the proper position and she is using her rear digit (halux) normally. She is flying about this 60′ flight pen easily.

Sharing the high perch with her is the hatch-year ’21 bald eagle from near Laurel, Iowa.
