NEWPORT, Wash. – Two bald eagles rescued several weeks ago during a windstorm, were released back into the wild Wednesday.
The eaglets have spent the last two months at the Moyie Springs Raptor Center, where they learned to fly and fend for themselves.
Two people working for the Kalispell Tribe came across the young eaglets after they fell out of their nest during a strong wind storm in June.
They rescued the babies and took them to trainer Ken English who nurtured them and taught them what they needed to know to survive in the wild.
Ken and the two workers who found them, were on hand Wednesday as the eagles were released back to Indian Island.
