Last week, The Oregonian ran two stories about Bald Eagles that have received treatment at the Wildlife Care Center, one that was released four years ago, and one that's still with us.

Thriving in the wild

When our Wildlife Care Center staff and volunteers release a rehabilitated animal, they usually have no way to know what happens to it down the road – they simply do everything they can to return it to health and then hope for the best. The Oregonian has a wonderful story about an eagle who has bucked this trend: Four years after we released the eagle, Steve Berliner photographed him though his scope and pieced together the bird’s leg band number. We are thrilled to report the eagle is thriving! Read the full article, by Justin Runquist, and then view video of the Bald Eagle below: “Rehabilitated bald eagle spotted alive and well along Willamette River four years after release.”

A long road to health

The Oregonian's Katy Muldoon has provided an update about the injured Bald Eagle in our care – the female found on West Hayden Island – and the bird’s recent CT scan. Thanks to Dr. Jennifer Tepavich at VCA Northwest Veterinary Specialists for performing the scan for free!
