GILBOA – A bald eagle found in January near death in the town of Gilboa recovered and was released back into the wild Sunday, state Department of Environmental Conservation officials said Wednesday,
The 3-year-old eagle was found nearly lifeless in a snow bank along Flat Creek Road Jan. 25 by town workers plowing snow, officials said.
The workers brought it back to the Broome Center town maintenance facility where an environmental conservation officer collected the eagle and took it to Friends of the Feathered and Furry Wildlife Center in Greene County for rehabilitation, officials said.
Then, after two months recovering, facility staff successfully released the eagle back into the wild in Gilboa, near the ditch where it was found, officials said.
