ROBIN update

This beautiful baby bald eagle is getting better and better. She can now feed herself, loves elk steak (don't we all) and altho she hasn't eaten the two mice I put down for her, I'm sure she'll do so this afternoon when I add more elk to the pile.

She will never be releasable due to her vision impairment but she will be an awesome educational ambassador. Unfortunately, because she was so thin and weak when she came in, repair surgery for her fractured left wing was not done. By now the bones have probably formed a callus that would require rebreaking and we certainly won't do that for fear of causing greater harm. At a future date she may be partially flighted.
