After a few days and a clean bill of health, biologists transported the eaglet safely back to its nest, where it was reunited with the other nestlings.
Several days later, however, the eaglet was once again found on the ground below its nest. Apparently, a case of “rivalry” between its two older siblings left it dehydrated, underweight, and without a home.
The eaglet was taken to Liberty Wildlife and received intensive care and rehabilitation.
On June 10, the fully recovered eaglet was relocated and fostered to the bald eagle breeding area near Show Low Lake where it was cared for by older birds and, after time, fledged successfully.
