Temporary visitor

This is a two year old Bald Eagle, JACKSON, who came here today from the Teton Raptor Center in Wilson, WY. They don't have a flite barn and she's been very unhappy in the mews they've been keeping her in. She was caught in a snare back in January which damaged the secondary feathers on her right wing. They still haven't molted back in. She also has a bit of a tilt to her head which has no explanation. It was thought that by being in a larger, free flight area, she may calm down and work out the kinks that bother her. Only time will tell.

This is a fuzzy photo, I'll try to get a better one after she gets used to me.
