D20 Update

Updates from 2 August 2014~
The Decorah juvenile eagle (admit date of 22 June) is still receiving physical therapy (PT) on his right wing. When PT is 'provided' for the Decorah juvenile, it takes Kay to hold the eagle and another person to gently move the wing through the range of motion to stretch and loosen the muscles, joints, and tendons. However, he needs to start doing his own physical therapy -- it's always better for our patients to do their own therapy -- and be abl...e to move about more. He'll soon be moved to the 100' flight pen with his current "roomie" the Boonesfork Juvenile (admit date of 1 July).
