First Eagle, a female, came to us after apparently hitting some powerlines. Her wing is permanently damaged and she is unable to fly. She is a breeding female from a pair that have nested on the refuge near our house. Almost 2 months later we get a second Eagle, a male, from the same refuge. He has been in a fight with something and has a partial wing amputation. Same wing as the female. We believe this male eagle may be the mate to the female. Here they are introduced for the first time. FOR MORE INFORMATION ON OUR REHABILITATION WORK PLEASE GO TO OUR WEBSITE AT: http://www.freewebs.com/blessthebeastsinc/
