While there I ran into Kathy Casstevens of the Starved Rock Lodge who told us us about an injured eagle that was recently released along the shores of the Illinois River at the Starved Rock State Park.
Kathy took some video of the release and talked to Karen and Steve Herdklotz of "Hoo" Haven of Durand, IL who did the rehab work on this bird. As you'll see in this video, the eagle is now fine.
This was the 38th eagle that the Herdklotz's released back to nature.
