A distressed juvenile bald eagle was noticed on Jan. 26 in Cootes Paradise by artist Simon Frank and his wife Jessica Smith. He called for a wildlife rescue service that came out, but sadly the eagle later died. Tests are being done to determine the cause of death but it is believed to be lead poisoning.  Photo courtesy of Simon Frank

From S.O.A.R. yesterday:

https://www.facebook.com/SOAR-Saving-Our-Avian-Resources-422229164528389/

"~ When will it stop? ~

**OKAY** If you are reading this post... it is about one lead poisoned eagle. Nothing more. Be nice to one another or this entire post will be deleted.

SOAR has admitted six bald eagles already in 2019. Five of the six we know had elevated lead levels. One came in dead on arrival and necropsy has yet to be completed.

Five of the six had elevated lead levels, read that again... five of six with elevated lead levels! Are you mad? We are!

One of those five was admitted today (2/15/19) and is the only one still alive as of this posting.

The bald eagle admitted today was reported to Winneshiek County (Iowa) dispatch by MANY people driving a county blacktop west of Decorah this morning. Thank you to everyone for caring enough to make a phone call. We also learned that an adult bald eagle was seen on the 14th in the same area feeding on roadkill. We're betting this is the same eagle.

This is an adult female that is a tish thin. Her blood lead level is HI. Fluids and chelation therapy have been started. This eagle was unable to hold her head upright during transfer today and she was having seizures. Both symptoms of lead poisoning.

Thanks to Winneshiek County Conservation for rescue and to SOAR friends Brian and Patti for the first leg in the transport. Thank you being part of our village.

SOAR has checked in with our friends at Raptor Resource Project and they tell us that both the Decorah Mom and the new Decorah North female have been seen on camera SINCE the call from dispatch to us of the need for rescue.

Thank you all for your support. Please spread the word to get the lead out of hunting and fishing!"
