CHARLES COUNTY, Md. — Ding dong, delivery! The following social media post was made after a Charles County resident flagged an injured bald eagle on their property that needed some help.
The following message was posted by the Maryland Department of Natural Resources:
“A Charles County resident reached out to us yesterday afternoon when he received a package he didn’t order. An injured bald eagle had perched on the rocking chair on his front porch and activated his doorbell camera.
When he arrived home later the eagle was still in his front yard and unable to fly more than a few feet.
When Wildlife and Heritage Response staff members Jane and Pauline arrived, the eagle was perched on the resident’s fence. They were able to capture the eagle and give it a brief exam. The eagle was then transported, by fellow Response Technician Dillon, to TriState Bird Rescue for further evaluation and treatment.”
