Volunteer Toni took this photo of a Great Horned Owlet (and the eagle photo below) that fell 35 feet from its nest in Eltopia, Washington. It must have bumped the left wing on the way down. The elbow is very swollen. There may be damage in the shoulder and wrist as well.

The Bald Eagles have a new perch courtesy of volunteers Toni and Don Faust. The eagles are very pleased with their new furniture.

Bald Eagle From Moses Lake

For the second week in a row, Sunday evening brought another Bald Eagle, the sixth this year. For the first time, the eagle was likely injured by another eagle in a territorial dispute, rather than by a human with a gun or a car. Unfortunately, the eagle appears to have a broken back. His left eye is badly damaged and he has swallowed a fish hook!

The call about the injured eagle came in just past noon. The eagle was transported 145 miles to Pendeton by 7:15 pm. It took six awesome BMW volunteers to get the job done. Mark Hurd captured the eagle and placed him in a transport box. New volunteer (and finder of the injured eagle) Ray Moss transported him to Mesa, WA where he met volunteers Dan and Claudia Becker. They transported the eagle to Umatilla, OR where they met Bob who brought the eagle on to Pendleton. Laurel McKeehan coordinated the project. 

Below, the eagle is recovering from anesthesia. He is unable to stand, but does have feeling in both feet.
