Here is a happier story, from CTV Vancouver news yesterday:

A bald eagle has been released back into the wild three months after he flew into a Vancouver power line.

Air Date: March 12, 2016




http://bc.ctvnews.ca/video?clipId=821403  (Click on the relevant video clip - "Flying free: injured eagle released into wild" - under BROWSE VIDEO showing beneath the newscast)

This eagle was injured three months ago after flying into a power line.  He was badly burned and given little chance of survival.  The eagle was taken to OWL and slowly nursed back to health.  His release at this time means that he will be able to (hopefully) rejoin his mate!

That was a sweet release and great outcome for the eagle and his mate. It was really nice to see our Eaglesonly explaining and doing the release. OWL does amazing work with raptors. Altogether uplifting.  :thumbup:
