Rehabilitated Bald Eagle Released at LBL


Land Between the Lakes - LBLLand Between the Lakes, KY/TN – A young bald eagle was released back into the wild Saturday, October 10th, 2015, at Land Between The Lakes National Recreation Area near Duncan Lake.

Forest Service volunteer eagle nest monitor, Ray Stainfield, found the young eagle out of its nest during routine eagle nest monitoring in June. Ray noticed a stick hidden under its left wing. The eagle’s breast had begun to grow around the stick and required treatment.

Following rehabilitation with Eileen Wicker’s staff at Raptor Rehabilitation of Kentucky, a volunteer for the center released the eagle. After a short flight and a rest in a nearby tree, the eagle took to the skies.
