Martin and Susan were called out to the highway to rescue a Golden Eagle that was having trouble flying. After capturing the bird, Martin saw her crop was stuffed full. Since she was otherwise healthy, his first diagnosis was that she simply ate so much she could not get over a fence along the side of the highway.
In April we received a beautiful sub-adult male golden eagle that had been injured at the windfarm near Milford Utah. Its injuries were extensive with a severe concussion. Because of the concussion, it appeared to be blind in the right eye. It was unable to stand and we were afraid it may have had a spinal cord injury. Fortunately that was not the case.
A sub-adult male golden eagle wedged between a metal fence and cinderblock wall at a home near the foothills in Parowan had been stuck for several days without food and water while suffering because of an unusually hot June. Fortunately the home owner returned just in the nick of time to find the eagle stuck in his back yard and called the SWF.
Martin introduces Scout, a 17 year old rescued wild Golden Eagle. A farmer in Wyoming was threatening to shoot Scout so Martin went up to rescue him. Eagles are very special to him ever since first working with them back around the age of sixteen.
A very pretty little Red-Tailed Hawk made a full recovery and was released back to the wild. She was released by a group of visitors of the Red Rock Audubon Society in Vegas who spent a couple days in Cedar City and saw some sights of Southern Utah with Martin.
