Olivia the eagle has developed into a swimmer with real talon.



Carer Patty Perry found teaching the sick bird to flap about in her pool was a good way to get back her strength.

Olivia was discovered starving, half blind and unable to hunt last year. But she has made a dramatic recovery thanks to Patty.
The 55-year-old has helped dozens of birds with aqua training at her Californian centre and is specially proud of the eagle.

She said: "Olivia loves to swim. We spend 20 minutes in the water three days a week."

Olivia, four, will never be freed into the wild as her sight is too damaged, but at least she's found a human who will go to any lengths to help....
