LANCASTER, Va. (AP) - A bald eagle that has been recovering at the Wildlife Center of Virginia has regained its health and is scheduled to be released into the wild.
    
The center announced Tuesday that it will release the bald eagle at 11:30 a.m. on Thursday at Belle Isle State Park in Lancaster.
    
The young bird, hatched this spring and likely a female, was found June 24 on the ground in Northumberland County by an Animal Control Officer.
    
Professionals at the Wildlife Center have given the eagle health treatment, including antibiotics and exercise. The eagle has been outfitted with a transmitter, which will track its travels.
    
The release is free and open to the public. Those who wish to attend are asked to RSVP at lkegleywildlifecenter.org.
