BE 06-41 arrived yesterday by plane

This imature Bald Eagle lost a battle with a small plane in Homer, Alaska. His left wing is broke at the radius and ulna, both. He was sent to us by USF&W via a pet clinic. I picked him up at the air freight terminal.

Dr Todd Palmatier examined him at Bird TLC and wrapped his wing up for now. He needs to stabilize, eat a little and get some fluids. Maybe on Saturday we'll have a pin placed.
