Alaskan Eagles III

Copyright Barbara Samuelson 1997

American Bald Eagle (Haliaeetus leucephalus) from the Alaska Raptor Rehabilitation Center in Sitka, Alaska.

VOLTA - Concerned Sitkans called the ARRC after seeing an eagle fly into a power line (hence the name Volta) running parallel to a beach in Sitka, Alaska. Suffering primarily from concussion related injuries, Volta also sustained temporary damage to an eye and one wing. During Volta's rehabilitation, they discovered a shoulder injury which limits his flight ability. This injury makes Volta unreleasable.

These images come from the Alaska Raptor Rehabilitation Center in Sitka, Alaska. It is a marvelous facility for caring for injured and otherwise damaged raptors. They are open to the public, and are in need of donations of both medical supplies and money.
