A male bald eagle, found in Parrish, was brought to Save Our Searbirds for rehabilitation three months ago.
After he was treated he was released, but he did not fly away.
A second X-ray revealed that he had arthritis in his elbow, which prevented him from surviving on his own. The eagle will soon be placed in a different facility that has an eagle permit, most likely within a week to a month.
But, in the meantime, SOS is asking for help in giving him a name. Fill in the blank: “Sir _____.” E-mail your suggestions to: email@example.com.
You can visit the bald eagle, and all the other birds at Save Our Seabirds, from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. daily.
Admission is free.
SOS hopes to have a bald eagle permit within the year.
