Houston SPCA’s Wildlife Center of Texas had the honor of releasing a juvenile bald eagle back into the wild in July 2021.
The eagle was discovered severely dehydrated and thin back in May. Wildlife Center staff immediately began rehydration protocol, took x-rays, and ran blood work. They found an infection was present in his lab work, so the bird spent some time receiving treatment and recovering under veterinary care.

Once treatment was complete, the juvenile bald eagle moved to the outdoor flight complex. He spent time strengthening his wings again and displaying the ability to fly reliably for several weeks. Once staff members were confident in his flight abilities, this majestic animal was returned to the wild where he belongs.
