And he's off.

And he's off.

WDNR Conservation Wardens Meghan Jensen and Ryan Lowry got word today -- January 8 -- that a bald eagle appeared to be in trouble and unable to get back into flight. The two wardens, joined by a Trempealeau County Sheriff's Office deputy, set off to see what was up with the mighty bird. They found a juvenile bald eagle that had one of its legs caught in an area near a pond. With steady hands, a cover and teamwork, the wardens were able to carefully extract the youthful bird and release it in an open area. Said Warden Meghan: "It was an awfully windy day but we were able to watch the youngster take flight, appearing to have no major injuries."
