Cordova Eagle

Ruth and I picked up a Bald Eagle at the airport last night that was flown in from Cordova. Thanks to ERA Aviation and Alaska Airlines Cargo for their support. Terry Webb in Cordova sent it to us. This bird was found near an area where salmon was spawning and where there were plenty of eagles. It was soaking wet, laying on it's stomach with his wings spread. Barbara Doak meet us at Bird TLC. We looked it over and there were no apparent injuries so we bedded it down for the night with fresh water and food (salmon). Saturdays crew will check it out a little more.

Dr Scott examined this eagle today. It's scheduled for x-rays. It seems that it has a spraigned hock (ankel) and a damaged tail vertabra. More to come after x-rays are done.

This guy looks and seems very uncomfortable. I have pictures that I'll post this weekend.
