WAYNESBORO, Va. (AP) - Two bald eagles nursed back to health by The Wildlife Center of Virginia will be released this week.
The center says in a news release that on Wednesday, an adult female bald eagle will be released at Widewater State Park in Stafford County. The eagle was found near Widewater in May with a broken talon and several superficial foot lacerations.
On Thursday, a juvenile male eagle will be returned to the wild at Chippokes Plantation State Park in Surry County. The bird had an initial head tremor and lacked muscle coordination when it was found on the ground in Windsor in June, but it showed rapid improvement after being moved to one of the center's outdoor flight pens.
