He was such a beautiful bird. Good to hear they are renovating the habitat area.

So they have no eagles now? Lst time we were there, there were 3. Or is it he was the last golden eagle in the habitat? (I remember 1 golden, and 2 bald.)

I remember seeing this eagle the last time I was at Grandfather. Such a majestic raptor.....hurry with the renovations so we can help more injured birds like Morley.

The news is so depressing.....this eagle was 3 years older than me. So sad.
