Two Years Ago : Rescued Golden Eagle

These photos were taken at the aviary at Deep Creek Lake State Park in Western Maryland. (please see more photos and text below)

On several Sundays each month staff based at the park’s Discovery Center take some of the rescued birds who live in the park’s aviary out of their houses and show the birds to park goers as part of the park’s Aviary Encounter Program. On this visit, the park’s golden eagle (above) was included in the presentation along with an owl. (shown below)

All of the birds in the aviary are rescue birds, many hit by cars. They have been rehabilitated but can no longer survive in the wild. The golden eagle shown at the top of this post was rescued at the Blackwater National Wildlife Refuge near Cambridge, Md.
