A rescued bald eagle at the Northwest Raptor & Wildlife Center is set for release at 1 p.m. Saturday, April 9, at Dungeness County Park, 554 Voice of America Road in Sequim.
“The juvenile bald eagle came into the center last July with a fractured coracoid bone in its shoulder, banged up and very thin,” said Jaye Moore, director of the center.
“A lot of patient work has happened since then, and now this young eagle is healed up and can’t wait to get back to the wild.”
The center has other public releases planned for injured or ill wildlife it has rehabilitated, including the release of barred owls at 5:30 p.m. on Saturday, April 2, at 905 Hidden Trail Road in Port Townsend and at 5:30 p.m. Sunday, April 3, at 800 Lindberg Road in Port Angeles, opposite the Peninsula Golf Clubhouse.
“It is always an inspiring scene to see a wild animal healed by human hands get a chance to return to the wild,” said Matthew Randazzo, public relations director for the center.
