Olivia the bald eagle swimmer

November 21, 2008

(Chattahbox) — Olivia the bald eagle was discovered starving, half blind and unable to hunt last year. But she has made a dramatic recovery thanks to Animal care taker Patty Perry. Patty found teaching the sick bird to flap about in her pool was a good way to get back her strength. The 55-year-old has helped dozens of birds with aqua training at her California center 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 new way to soar.
