So how do you get an eaglet back up a 45ft tree to it's nest?
Jim Lott a master tree climber
was willing to help.
We placed the eaglet in a duffel bag and attached it to Jim's climbing rope.
He then pulled it up to the nest.
In March 2015, an 8 week old Bald Eagle came to ARC from animal control for evaluation and treatment after falling out of it's nest.
After a few days of rest and rehydration, it was ready to be returned to it's nest.
A hood was placed on the eaglet.
The purpose of a hood is to calm the bird.
We checked back a few days later an observed both parents in the area and the eaglet feasting on the catch of the day.
Success Stories - Eagle Renesting
With the eaglet securely back in it's nest, it wasn't long until an adult Bald Eagle started making swoops down toward the tree.
