Meet Beakman, BE 05-19. Cindy and I picked him up at the airport last night. He has come to us from Dutch Harbor on another flight provided by our friends at PenAir. We don't know how this injury happened, but it didn't happen recently. We didn't expect him to survive the night, however he did. He's a real fighter.
Dr. Scott examined him today. In his opinion this bird has a good chance of recovering. His beak will grow back in time, but only time will tell how well it does. This is a long term bird. He'll be with us at Bird TLC for at least a year. It's going to take a lot of time, tlc and funds. Keep your feathers crossed.
We picked up our 21st eagle of the year tonight. I tell you more about them later.
