Bald Eagle #17-2257 [HK] update

September 9, 2017
On Saturday, September 9, the veterinary team noted that the blood flow to HK's fractured right leg was not making any improvements, despite warm compresses and salt bath soaks, physical therapy, and laser therapy. The use of the eagle's left leg was unchanged. After the extensive morning treatments, Dr. Ernesto decided to check on the eagle again in the evening, and if there was no improvement, he would need to make a difficult decision.

In the afternoon, no improvements were seen, but the team decided to attempt one more procedure -- a fasciotomy, to relieve the tension and pressure in the leg that had lost circulation. Sadly, HK died under anesthesia. Dr. Monica attempted CPR for several minutes, but could not revive HK.

The team is saddened that, despite an all-out effort of treatment, HK's injuries were too severe to overcome. The veterinary team will perform a necropsy, to see what else they can learn about HK's injuries.

Please Continue Posts Any NBG Area comments here!

There is no cam. The NBG eagles continue to claim the Garden as their home. They continue to build nests which are torn down.

This situation is near and dear to many of our hearts...thus, we are keeping this thread!!!

The male eagle has established a nest nearby on private property and continues to raise eaglets with his current mate. There is no cam but Eagle On Alliance follows the nest and reports on their community FB page

The Eagle On Alliance have launched a new website!!

News about one of "the Rock Stars from 2011 is back at the Wildlife Center Virginia
Quote:
Bald Eagle NZ Returns to the Wildlife Center for Treatment
Post Date:
Friday, November 20, 2020
On November 18, Bald Eagle "NZ" -- one of the original "Rock Star" Norfolk Botanical Garden eaglets that the Wildlife Center rehabilitated and released in 2011 -- was found injured with a broken leg in King George County. The eagle was picked up by the sheriff and taken to Alton's Keep in Suffolk, Virginia, where rehabilitator Harley Thomas White examined the bird and bandaged her leg. The eagle will be transferred to the Wildlife Center of Virginia on the morning of November 20, for further examination and surgery.

Stay tuned for updates later today!

Here a post about the arrival of NZ, with pictures of Ed Clark with the carrier

A very sad outcome :tissue:

Updates
November 21, 2020
After much evaluation and discussion, the veterinary team made the difficult decision to euthanize Bald Eagle NZ, #11-0474. Due to the severity of her injuries, the eagle would never be able to be released back into the wild. The eagle's right leg fracture was open and contaminated; while that leg fracture may have been surgically repairable, NZ's right-wing injury was severe. The trauma to NZ's wingtip caused all of the small, delicate bones in the end of her wing to fracture into multiple pieces; the soft tissue and bones were infected, and the bone fragments had already started to die. Dr. Karra estimates that the trauma to NZ occurred about five to seven days ago. Sadly, there is no treatment possible to salvage the dead, infected bones, which means NZ could never be returned to the wild. NZ was also very thin, with a body condition of 1/5, and a blood lead level of 0.1 ppm.

The Center staff are deeply saddened by the outcome, given the history with this "rock star" patient; she was first admitted with her siblings more than nine years ago, in the spring of 2011. However, it's comforting to know that NZ has been in the wild for nine years, living her life as a wild eagle should.
