Do you know the way to Haines, Alaska?

 These two eagles are going to Haines on Wednesday for the Alaska Bald Eagle Festival in Haines. There they'll be released as part of the "Flight for Freedom".
 Both of these birds came to Bird TLC from Adak, Alaska. They received burns while at the local dump. All of the primary and secondary flight feathers were heavily damaged and they were unable to fly. We had to wait on Mother Nature to have the birds molt, to see if they would be able to fly.
The last two photos should tell you how that turned out.
Here's hoping for a wonderful life for these two young birds in the Chilkat Bald Eagle Preserve.
