Once the eaglet was spotted near the dam’s spillway and within the proximity of the eagle’s nest, Alicia Palmer, Raystwon Lake’s Natural Resource specialist, and Laney Reasner, Student Conservation Association intern, sprang into action.

After the rescue, the eaglet was transported to Centre Wildlife Care where it is receiving necessary care after testing positive for the West Nile Virus.
