The Clinic for the Rehabilitation of Wildlife released a fledgling bald eagle in the area of its nest in Fort Myers this morning.

The eagle was rescued by CROW volunteers in the same area on April 27 after it was observed on the ground for over 24 hours without being provided food by the adults.

When admitted to CROW, the eagle was thin and a blood sample showed it was mildly anemic. Veterinarians provided the eagle with iron and B12 for the anemia and plenty of food.

After a week, the eagle's blood was re-checked and showed the anemia had resolved. Once it began making flights to the top perches in the large flight enclosure, it was deemed ready to be released.
