A baby eagle that would not have survived on its own has been moved to a new nest in Nanoose Bay, where it has been adopted by two adults with a chick of their own.

A family discovered the injured eaglet on the West Coast Trail late last month. The bird had a sprained leg, likely from falling out of its nest. The family, stranded by bad weather in the boat-accessed area, fed the bird raw hamburger to keep it alive.
