SEP 15: Rescued Eaglet (P Piney 26) sighted and photographed!
Shawnlei writes (September 16, 2021):
I got a message last night that a photographer took a photo of a banded juvenile eagle at Circle B Bar Reserve in Polk County yesterday. The photographer, Kevin McFadden, said the band was green K/49 (see attached photo). I traced that back in our records and this was your eaglet from BO002 that was released on 6/14 at Lake Kissimmee! After his rough start, and thinking he might not fly again due to his wing fracture, I am so excited to see he is doing well! Just wanted to let you know.
Thanks for all you do!

Since this photo has now been circulating on Facebook with Kevin's permission, the same general rule about limitation of its use applies. Therefore, I assume that if published, it should be attributed to the photographer and not used commercially.
