More gold at IBR
I just got a call from my friend who has a tree nest with two golden eagle chicks in it. The adults have done a wonderful job in raising these babies. Both fledged within the past week or so but one came down today practically under the nest. The landowner called me so I quickly went there to see what was wrong. It's possible she has a broken right leg but naturally it's after hours at the vet. She's settled in one of my 6x6 mews and will be taken in tomorrow morning for xrays.
Hopefully this is just a case of a bad landing and her leg is only bruised. In that case she'll rest here for a bit and then be taken back to her home place and released. Her name is TESSA.
