Bald Eagle #7

This young guy was fished out of one of the bays in Kodiak. When he arrived at Bird TLC it still had a pretty full crop and was really soaking wet.
Here' Cindy Palmatier is smelling its breath to make sure the food still in its crop hasn't soured.
Ginamaria and Cindy tube fed the young guy with a diluted solution of Critical Care. The main idea if for it to help dissolve the food that's in its crop. Brian's holding our guy and afterwards placed him in a warm kennel.
We're getting a lot of eagles in early this year. Everything from airplane hit, snare or trap caught to being fished out of the water.
