Mild Winter Weather Results In Fewer Injured Birds

I’m going to credit our relatively mild winter for the decrease in admissions when compared to last year: 31 birds by January 21, 2017, and just 17 birds by January 21, 2018. That includes the 6 birds admitted this past week: 5 raptors and a Dark-eyed Junco.

Bald Eagle 18-006 Update

We have dropped the juvenile Bald Eagle’s blood lead level from 813 micrograms/deciliter to 130 mcg/dl. Although that is an amazing reduction, it is still a very toxic amount of lead. The other good news is she has managed to pass the lead particles in her gut.
