Reminder About the Bald Eagle Release

Just a reminder about the release of the two bald eaglets on Saturday. It looks like it will be a glorious day in the 50s and sunny, if the weather forecast holds. So despite the less than ideal weather over the last few days, it will break so there will be perfect weather for the release.....fittingly so.

Come experience this special event and also  help support Flint Creek Wildlife Rehabilitation and the wonderful work that they do.

Details about the event once again......

Witness the release of two bald eaglets back to the wild. These were the birds from Batavia, whose nest had blown down in high winds and although the nest was replaced the parents did not return to care for them. They were then raised in captivity at Flint Creek Wildlife Rehabilitation Center. This event is the culmination of a concerted effort to provide for them with a wonderful resolution. They are now ready to be set free!

The release will be held at Starved Rock State Park, Saturday, November 12th from 11:00 AM until 1:00 PM. It will be a once in a lifetime opportunity. There will be a minimum suggested tax-deductible donation of $10 per person, to help Flint Creek Wildlife defray the cost of raising these eaglets and building their flight chamber.
