This young Bald Eagle (BE 07-007) was sent to us by Beth of U.S.F.&W. in the Kenai National Wildlife Refuge. It was laying down, not wanting to get up. When it arrived at the clinic, it was a little more active. We gave a thorough exam and found no injuries. We placed it in a clean mew with fresh water and salmon. It stood up right off the bat. The best we can figure that he made a common mistake a lot of young eagles do. He over ate. His crop was too full so he felt real bad.
It'll spend a little time with us under observation. Meals and board on Bird TLC. He'll be released before long at all.
