What a profound honor and thrill it was to be able to witness the release of a rehabilitated juvenile Bald Eagle back near its nesting site in Vermont. The Vermont Institute of Natural Science Center for Wild Bird Rehabilitation program was contacted when this juvenile Eagle was found at the base of a tree in early June of 2021. Upon examination it was determined that the Eagle suffered a broken clavicle and a treatment program was initiated. Fast forward to August 2021 - and the rehab appears to have been a success! The Eagle was lovingly named "Fire" - a nod to the location where it was found. We wish you nothing but fair winds, Fire - and a long and fruitful life.
Many thanks to the dedicated personnel at Vermont Institute of National Science. You are all angels on earth!
