Eagle Release Saturday At Fountain Grove

An eagle will be released back into the wild Saturday afternoon in the area.  The Missouri Department of Conservation and the MU Raptor Project will release the Bald Eagle at 2:00 pm at Fountain Grove.

The injured bald eagle was brought to the MU Raptor Project on January 4th, by the Linn County Conservation Agent.  The eagle was named “Nile” and after a week in the hospital, he was sent to one of our large flight cages to finish his rehabilitation. Nile has made a full recovery and will be banded and released on Saturday.  The conservation agent that brought the eagle in for rehab will be on hand.
