HY19 bald eagle face down in a harvested field on 24 September 2019

This juvenile female was not at all perky and did not want to stand. This young bald eagle is a female and her blood lead level is low.

After several days of receiving fluids and being hand-fed, she is standing, but still wants to be hand-fed. She is also being treated for aspergillosis as she has raspy breathing.

SR has almost completed her antifungal treatment for aspergillosis. Her breathing is much improved. She is eating on her own now. As soon as the medication is completed, she will move to a flight pen.
