The California-born eaglet was accidentally kicked out of the nest by an adult eagle while sleeping.
This eaglet, along with the others being raised on the island, are part of a 40-year reintroduction program. And a rescue squad was soon called in to help it.
“It’s about an hour hike from the nearest road,” wildlife biologist Peter Sharpe told ABC. From there, it took another thirty minutes to help the eaglet back where it belonged. “I… checked its legs and its wings to make sure there wasn’t any obvious breaks. Internal injuries, I can’t say, but they’re pretty resilient,” said Sharpe.
