A Bald Eagle's Flight to Recovery

Found shocked, burned and unable to fly, a bald eagle is now making quite the recovery. The Peace River Wildlife Center in Punta Gorda is nursing the bird back to health thanks to donations from the public. Phoenix still can't fly. The female bald eagle is missing most of the feathers on the right side of her body. "The right wing, the feathers were just burnt down to the quills. There was nothing left," explains Dr. Robin Jenkins, a veterinarian who volunteers at the Peace River Wildlife Center. Jenkins thinks the eagle was shocked by a power line and caught on fire before she ended up at the center. http://www.nbc-2.com/story/20755658/burned-easgle-recovering-at-wildlife-center
