The bald eagle, with its striking white head and powerful wingspan, is a symbol of America’s strength, freedom, and independence.
Humans inherently find the babies of mammals adorable, a phenomenon deeply rooted in evolutionary development.
As a native species to North America, the bald eagle’s presence across the land mirrors the vastness and diversity of the U.S.
Imagine the astonishment of finding a bald eagle, America’s iconic emblem of freedom, grounded in your backyard.
Nikki Christian, a licensed wildlife rehabilitator, was quick to respond and throws a comforter over the eagle, trying to prevent its escape towards the woods.
Without wasting any time, Nikki took the eagle to her home. She provided it with essential fluids and administered a shot of steroids.
While the initial assumption was a vehicle collision, there were no visible bone injuries. Later speculations hinted at potential illnesses like Bird flu or West Nile virus.
The eagle’s journey didn’t end at Nikki’s home.
They later transferred it to a specialized wildlife rehabilitation and raptor center.
