Patient of the Week

Every day new patients arrive at our facility. In an effort to tell their story of survival and highlight the diverse number of species that we rehabilitate, we highlight a new patient each week. Some of these are individuals, others are orphaned siblings. As their cases progress - we will update the outcome - our hope is that many, many of these patients are released!

Baby Bald Eagle

By Sarvey Wildlife / Tuesday, June 22, 2021 /

On Friday, June 18th, we received a call about this young Bald eagle on the ground in Clinton. He had been out of the nest for a while and was on the ground with no parents in sight. From the images we saw from the homeowner, it was clear that he was too young to be a true fledgling eaglet and he was looking weak and in need of help. We sent one of our staff wildlife rehabilitators out to assess the situation. Indeed, she discovered he was dehydrated, emaciated and laying on his keel. She crated him up and brought him back over to Arlington on the ferry. His blood work showed signs of an infection, not surprising since he was malnourished and dehydrated. He is on antibiotics and is now self-feeding. We are optimist that he will eventually be released. We will work with some local bird-banders to be sure he is banded and then we will be able to monitor his success post release. Status: pending
