Adak burn eagle to be released

Bird Treatment and Learning Center
NEWS RELEASE
The Bird Treatment and Learning Center in Anchorage is excited to announce the release of one of the burn eagles from Adak. The bird now known as Sparkie, came to Bird TLC in February 2014 after hunting rodents at the Adak landfill and landing on hot embers along with five other eagles. The fire did heavy damage to its tail and wing feathers. After a lengthy recovery, the feathers regrew after the bird molted its damaged feathers. He’s been recovering at Bird TLC’s Flight Center on JBER Richardson for the past 4 months regaining his strength.
Sparkie has proven that he is ready to be released with his beautiful flight. He will be released at the Soldotna Progress Days in Soldotna this Saturday at 2 pm. The release is open to the public and admission is free.
For more information, call Dave Dorsey @ 907-351-4968 / davedorsey@gci.net or the Bird TLC office at 907-562-4852 / office@birdtlc.net
