Bald Eagle recovered near Watertown February 20, 2018. Lab results are negative for lead poisoning, however, her symptoms indicate she likely ingested something toxic. The eagle continues to receive supportive care, and is progressing well.  We receive no state or federal funding for the care of this eagle and other birds that come in to our center. You can help the eagle by donating to assist with her expenses.  Donations are tax deductible. We will continue to keep you updated on her progress through our Facebook page HooswoodsRaptorCenter
