Female Bald Eagle who lost the tip of her beak after being hit by a car on October 5, was released from Avian Haven on November 24th on her home turf at Phillips Lake in Dedham.
She was getting restless and the workers at the haven knew it was time for her to return to her home, where hopefully her mate awaits. As you can see, her beak still lacks the typical full curved tip. The workers at haven said she has proven that she can tear up the toughest meat so, she was released in time for Thanksgiving.
Avian Haven is a non-profit and does amazing work caring for wild birds. Consider a donation.
