This was sent to me early this morning - I tried to call Debra, but could only leave a message. If anyone wants to see the photos (3), please write to me - later I will post them on my Flickr album. I've contacted WDFW through Chris Anderson, but one of you may have another contact or a contact # for the dept. and can make a call. As I just rec'd this message and cannot get in touch with Debra, I don't know the status of the bird as of daylight today.

Any help will be appreciated by all, especially the eagle...

The message:

Hi Barb,
My name is Debra Hoskins and I have followed your postings on Tweeters...I am pretty new to tweeters and registered a couple of months ago but have never posted. Rather than trying to figure out how to go about posting at this late hour, I am sending you what I wanted to post.

To all my birding friends and eagle lovers, please be on alert and help keep track of this injured eagle. I believe it is one of the pair that has the nest at FIR ISLAND RESERVE which is 3.2 miles from the Conway exit driving towards LaConner. This eagle was in a short tree directly across from the entrance into the reserve. I was there for about 2 hours and saw one of the eagles come and go from the nesting tree. It wasn't until I was leaving that I noticed this one across the street. I have a sick feeling this is the female that is injured because its larger than the other one. My heart sank when I got home tonight and downloaded these pictures. When looking through my viewfinder I thought this was about a 4 year old eagle who still had some brown on its head. After zooming in and cropping the images I can clearly see the terrible injuries! I would have called Sarvey Wildlife Care Center in Arlington if I had realized it then. I live in Stanwood so its a close drive and I will go back to carefully scout the area before I head to Winthrop for the weekend. If she is still in the same tree or on the ground I will call Sarvey.
Blessings, Debra Hoskins..425-876-5881
