This bald eagle rescue story will melt your heart
An eagle was grounded, but flies again thanks to volunteers at a northern Michigan wildlife rescue organization.
A volunteer for the Empire, Mich-based Wings of Wonder rescued a bald eagle Feb. 1 that was grounded on Lake Michigan with a nearly 8-inch ice ball frozen to its tail, according to a story in the Old Mission Gazette .
The bird appears to enjoy the warm “bath” it had to melt the ice ball and upon its release it was greeted by two other eagles who joined it and the circled and flew away.
