Sharing some great photos from the Feb 20, 2016 release of three (3) Bald Eagles at Sauk Prairie. Thanks to Allison Witte, Karin Barreau, Jayne Mullins, Linda Grenzer and the others that have contributed photos. We are so grateful for the captures of our staff and former patients as they leave captivity.
We have released 15 Bald Eagles since the 16th of January.

We have some adults that will be released in selected areas in the near future. We have to be very careful when releasing all eagles this time of the year but adults in particular as we take into consideration of territorial aggression of nesting pairs.

The three year old recovered from lead poisoning and was delighted to feel an open sky under her wings.
