UPDATED! Injured Bald Eagle will be realeased healthy

UPDATE

Wildlife Care Center staff have decided to delay the bald eagle release scheduled for Saturday August 24th. During the final round of exams, it was discovered the eagle was struggling to fly. I will keep you updated of a possible rescheduling. Sorry for the last minute notice, but this is the nature of rehabilitation. Below is the official press release for more details.

Portland Audubon would like to invite the public to the release of a rehabilitated Bald Eagle this Saturday (August 24th).

The bird was found in Longview, Washington in May almost completely incapacitated with lead poisoning, after months of treatment it is now ready to be released back to the wild.

We are planning to release the bird at 11 AM at Willow Grove Park on the Columbia River just west of Longview. It would be great if you and any of your members could join us at this event.
