I've written about Lisa and Petra many times on this blog, so I'll give you links to fill you in on some past stories. Lisa spent a lot of time traveling to the Bird TLC clinic to either feed Petra or take her back and forth to a presentation. Lisa decided it would be a lot easier if Petra lived at her house. After getting Bird TLC, USF&;W, and ADF&G approval, a new mew was being constructed in Lisa's backyard by her dad.
So now the mew is complete, it passed all inspections and is now on all permits. Today is moving day. The timing is right. Bird TLC signed a new lease at a new location today. We'll be moving there shortly and there's no room for Petra's old large mew.
Petra leaves her old mew for the last time. Prior to today, she would announce to anyone that would enter the mew yard that they are in her territory. She was the queen of the mew yard. That will be missed by all I'm sure. Petra has been very popular around Alaska also. She has met many celebrities, politicians and people wanting to know more about eagles.
I'm excited for Lisa because this is a new page in her life also. Not many people are allowed to be a caretaker of a bald eagle in their backyard. But Lisa isn't just anyone. She's well trained and has lots of experience.
I'm also excited for Petra. She be well taken care of and Lisa will have more time to spend with her.
