For The Birds

My photographer friend Rachel took these photos and video of a 3-4 month old female bald eagle chick being rescued in her backyard yesterday. Lisa Barlow from the terrific Hampton Roads-based Wildlife Response picked it right up, bare hands and everything! They think she may have fallen from her nest and is either too young or too confused to fly, but she's at the vet today and if all is well she'll be released back into Rachel's neighborhood this afternoon.

The music she chose for the video clip is "Me And The Eagle" by Steve Earle. This "baby" had herself a 6-foot wingspan!
