He's new to the neighborhood, but it looks like the new bald eagle at the Hawk Creek Wildlife Center is going to fit right in. Tanya Lowe Director of Wildlife Education says "unfortunately he doesn't have the ability or the agility to survive in the wild."
The beautiful bald eagle is missing a toe, and has suffered permanent feather follicle damage so it can't fly. On top of all that, he doesn't' have a name either. According to Tanya, he'll get named after they they get a feel for his personality. Right now she says he seems "sassy, so he'll need a name that's sassy and and patriotic"
The new ball eagle joins the other occupants of Hawk Creek Wildlife Center as they settle into their new home, the recently completed fifteen acre site in West Falls. It may be a new location, but Hawk Creek remains committed to education and wildlife conservation.
The next open house at Hawk Creek Wildlife Center is June 10th. You can get more information at their website.
