Thank-you Gzebear for sharing these stories. It's wonderful they all get a second chance.

BAEA 1300 PERRY
The last of our 2014-hatch eaglets was released on Sunday afternoon, at the same location on the Kennebec River as all the others, chosen by Maine's eagle biologist for its good fishing and because Bald Eagles of all ages tend to congregate there after nesting season (similar to the Hornby Island eagles going off to the salmon runs).

This youngster was rescued August 23 in Perry, Maine, weighing only 2.7 kg, less than 6 pounds. We built her up gradually from tubed fluids to fish 'smoothies' to easy-to-digest foods and then on to the real thing. She can put away some food now!

She was released along with a second-year bird from Dixfield but the photos of Dixfield were just a blur. Here is Perry's release ...


Out ....

               


Up ....

               


And away ....

               


It was a big year for eaglets at Avian Haven. Perry is the 8th (and last! phew!) of our this-year youngsters to be released.

       Fly free and far, live long and healthy, have babies, eat fish and soar high, all you beautiful beings!

Good work, gze  thumbup  
I see that Perry is banded - are you able to band all of your eagles?

Wonderful Gze! no internet for me today until I got on the train back to New York and I can't get video at all - so glad to see such a great young eagle!

Nancy, at the request of our State eagle biologist, all Bald Eagles leaving Avian Haven are banded, both State (red) and Federal (silver) bands.

BAEA 1523 Brunswick
We had just released the last of our hatch-year eagles and soon admitted another. This youngster was found 'swimming' in a landfill retention pond. The landfill staff managed to scoop her out and keep her safe until a volunteer got there and transported her to Avian Haven. She arrived wet, dirty, weak and thin. We built her up from fluids to smoothies to solid food, and she is doing well. This is her intake photo ...


               



And yes, Miss Brunswick had a bath!

               


She is now in Bart's Place, an outdoor cage that adjoins our big eagle cage. She has a voracious appetite! nod

I'm in love! What a face ♥

I thought this was a painting at first. She is where she needs to be. Thank you.
