Cold and wet
First name, FUDGE, last name, CICLE. Yep, this dark brown baby eagle came in covered with ice. I have no idea what or how it happened but he was very chilled when found. Luckily WGF Warden, James Hobbs, gathered him up after receiving a call about a large bird alongside a road and met me in Powell.
He's a bit thin, weighs only eight pounds, but this morning, after spending the night in a crate in my warm rodent room, he flew up to this wall perch. I've given him a meal and if he eats it all I'll probably take him out and release him in a good habitat in a few days. Hopefully he won't try taking another bath on a Saturday night .
