Thora the Bald Eagle from SOAR (Saving Our Avian Resources), who was named in honor of a man named Thor who died in Afghanistan, weighs about 10lbs and is approximately 5 years old. She is being treated for lead poisoning after ingesting leadshot from a deceased animal. The beautiful bird was on display during the Bald Eagle Watch at the Jester Park Lodge. Attendees could also use spotting scopes set up around Saylorville Lake to observe bald eagles in the natural setting and learn about our national symbol, view a Red-Tailed Hawk up close, and watch two rehabilitated Barred Owls released back into the wild.(Photo: Lee Navin / Special to The Des Moines Register)
