While he can’t confirm my suspicions, Trouble looks quite content. After Smith transferred him to his outdoor perch, Trouble got down to business and took thorough bath in his water-filled plastic bin.

Thanks to the work of the Audubon Birds of Prey Center, this little eagle with a crooked bill got a second chance.
