Cass County Naturalist helped out SOAR and rescued an injured bald eagle along IA-92 in her county. This hatch-year female has a fractured right humerus and is a bit thin.

SOAR could not do all that we do without help from other conservation staff and members of the public. Thank you!

(Eye shine in photo from flash, nothing appears amiss with either eye!)
