Just saw this on the WCV website. Prayers she is going to be OK.

Injured NX Being Transported to Wildlife Center
NX, a juvenile Bald Eagle rescued from her nest at the Norfolk Botanical Garden earlier this year and treated and released by the Wildlife Center, was admitted to a permitted wildlife rehabilitator in the Northern Neck last night [December 1] . The injured eagle was found at 10:45 p.m. in the middle of the road near the Ophelia post office and was picked up by a deputy from the local sheriff’s office.

The preliminary report from the permitted rehabilitator is that NX has a wing droop and blood in her mouth, but is feisty and is in good weight and physical condition.

The eagle is now being transported to the Wildlife Center and is expected to arrive late this afternoon. We’ll post additional information here as we learn it.

December 3 update
Dr. Dave reported that NX was standing this morning when he checked on her. She was anesthetized for radiographs and a more thorough physical examination. Today, Dr. Dave found an open wound on the left wing [which was flushed and sutured] and soft-tissue swelling over the right wrist [although the bones and tendons seem fine].

Two additional areas of concern:

GI tract. NX regurgitated overnight; her crop was empty this morning. Radiographs revealed a distended stomach. NX will be given some mice/small chunks of rat this evening to see if she will eat. Dr. Dave would like to take a look at NX’s GI tract within the next week, using the Center’s new endoscope.

Left shoulder. NX’s left shoulder looks slightly drooped, and there may be a slight decreased range of motion. Dr. Dave spotted what might be a small fracture on the head of the coracoid; additional radiographs [after shoulder swelling has subsided] may provide more insights. To be on the safe side, the Center’s veterinary team wrapped NX’s left wing in a body wrap.

Dr. Dave thinks these injuries are consistent with NX having been struck by a vehicle.


5:00 p.m. update:

When the veterinary team checked on NX at the end of the day, they found that she ate all of meal — a small meal of chopped rat/mice. The team hopes that she will keep the meal down overnight.

There was an updated posted on the 7th:
http://www.wildlifecenter.org/wp/2011/12/injured-nx/

And there's a link to a page about the "raptor wrapper" with directions on how to make them and how to get them to WCV -- in case anyone is feeling creative:

It didn't take long for someone to make a special "raptor wrapper" for NX. See the picture at the bottom of the entry for 12/8. Nice work!

December 12 update

NX continues to remain bright, alert, and feisty. She is eating well and finished up her course of medications over the weekend. Dr. Miranda decided to change the treatment procedure for NX’s right carpal [wrist] wound; on Saturday, Dr. Miranda applied a small, moist bandage to the area in hopes of encouraging the dry, scabby wound to heal more efficiently.
