Little Boots has gone into care

2 February 2022

Good News Everyone.

Little Boots at the Webster Texas Bald Eagle nest is in care!

Paul White worked with the USFWS to get the permits to go up and release the eaglet from being stuck – in the nest, monofilament line, etc. Boots was freed but had other issues and is going into care. This is a bit of a sigh of relief for everyone including Paul White who has also been worried. Boots will be well fed and cared for. Ringo will thrive. It looks like it could be a win-win. If there are too many issues with Boots, then we will be wait and see. We would not want the wee one to suffer.

The bucket going up to free Boots and then take him into care.

Thank you to everyone. We will look forward to progress reports in due time. Thanks Paul White for your FB postings and images that make up this blog today.

    1. You are so very welcome…it looks like it was just in the nick of time and so many things to coordinate. Send warm wishes to Boots!!!!!!

  2. Thank you for this hopeful news, Mary Ann. Thoughts and prayers for little Boots… 🙏💓

    1. Isn’t it wonderful? I understand from later posts that they needed a very large cherry picker that could make the height of the nest…those are not easy to come by. So cheers all around. It takes time to get these things together – the permit, then the cherry picker, then the rehabbers. So glad it wasn’t too late for little Boots. Just in the nick of time. Send warm wishes!
