Per SOAR: "Update on the 22 June admit, yes, the Decorah juvenile eagle - he and the Boonesfork juvenile (admit date of 1 July) are still in the small ICU room. The Decorah juvenile's wing is still stiff, but the joints all work and function. He will be receiving physical therapy and having that wing gently worked through the range of motion to decrease stiffness. (Raise your hand if you've ever had a physical or occupational therapist help you recover from an accident or surgery!) The good news on the maggot front is that the wound from the maggots at the base of his tail near his oil gland (used for preening) has healed nicely and those fuzzy feathers close to the body are growing. Nope, no change on the tail feather front.
