ZooAmerica acquired a female bald eagle from Juniata County in Pennsylvania, about 60 miles away from Hershey,where she was found with a wing injury. The country’s national bird and symbol of the United States, the bald eagle is one of the largest raptors found in North America. Once on the endangered species list, this bird of prey remains federally protected. The bird, which will be named at the Zoo's member event in August, is living in the Northlands section of ZooAmerica.
