A cardinal rule of wildlife rescue is: keep wild families together, whenever possible. This is the remarkable story of how The Bird Rescue Center of Sonoma County, California reunited an unlucky baby golden eagle with its parents.
Friday, April 24> JUST BEFORE closing time, we receive a call about a golden eagle that had fallen from its nest and is being brought to us to be examined. This is a first! While we’ve had juvenile golden eagles in our care before, we’ve never had a baby. The finders described seeing the nest, high up in a eucalyptus tree on their property, fall apart, sending the babe eagle inside tumbling to the ground.
