On Thursday, June 13, I was diligently working away on my book when the phone rang, I answer and it is my photographer buddy Bill Drake.  Well Bill explained that he is with a golden eagle that can’t fly and not being far from my home in Swan Valley Idaho, he asked whether I knew the local Game and Fish people so we could rescue this eagle. I told Bill we could do something, I just wasn’t sure what yet.

Foster dad Amp looks after four younger eagles.

This Father’s Day weekend, we take a look at a story of model parenting from an unlikely place: the world of birds.  We meet a bald eagle who’s done a remarkable job as a foster father to over a hundred and fifty orphaned chicks.

They call him Amp. 

"People are always surprised when I say we have a foster dad eagle. And they’re like, “well where’s the mom?”   Well, it would be great if we had a mom…but we don’t have a non-releasable mom .  And he does such a great job."

That’s Marge Gibson, Executive Director of the Raptor Education Group.  It’s a wildlife rehabilitation center in Antigo that takes in injured birds…and baby chicks who have lost parents.  We’re peering in through the door of the eagle compound…where right now foster dad Amp is in charge of four eaglets.

PIGEON FORGE, Tenn. (WVLT) -- Eaglets in Sevier County are recovering after their nest was destroyed by a severe storm.

According to the American Eagle Foundation, the two birds fell 75 ft onto the ground last Monday, they were found shortly after and taken into protection.

"We got a report that the nest had blown down I called a couple other stuff, we all met out there and we were able to find both birds within an hour," said Al Cecere, Founder & President of the American Eagle Foundation.

One eaglet had minor injuries, the other was severely hurt and now has a cast around his wing. Cecere says the birds will remain under the foundations care, and hopes both will be able to fly.

It was an emotional release. Volunteers and staff from the Orphaned Wildlife Rehabilitation Society gathered in Burnaby's Central Park on Tuesday to release an adult bald eagle that's been in rehabilitation for months.

The female eagle was brought into care, suffering massive head wounds, presumably after a fight with another eagle over territory or a mate.

Burnaby resident Laurie Hill found the eagle while visiting Central Park with a friend approximately six months ago.
