Bald Eagles Get Their Second Chances!
Kim Herzog prepares to release one of the young eagles.
Four juvenile bald eagles, former TRC clinic patients, were released at Colvill Park in Red Wing, MN. Young eagles that miss their opportunity to learn critical
hunting skills from their parents benefit greatly from being released
near open bodies of water that are often frequented by adult eagles. The
youngsters can learn by observing the experienced hunters and may even
be able to steal a fish or two!
This young eagle began to explore her new habitat right away!
