Arrived at Lakeside Nature Center on June 20, 2005.
bald eagle was found in Warsaw, Missouri by a conservation agent
who noticed that the bird was unable to fly. When the
eagle arrived at Lakeside's wild animal hospital, it was
extremely thin and missing its left eye. After further
examination and x-rays by our veterinarian, it was found to have
a severely broken right shoulder and wing. The breaks are
old and have healed improperly, giving this eagle only partial
flight capabilities and making it unreleasable back to the wild.
Our eagle is approximately 3-4 years old, and will develop the
characteristic white head and tail within the next several
