Todd Eskelin, a biological technician with the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service, carries an injured immature bald eagle to a cage in Eskelin's truck after he used a fish landing net to capture it in a wooded area alongside Kalifornsky Beach Road on Wednesday afternoon. The bird, likely a year old, was sent to the Bird Treatment and Learning Center in Anchorage for evaluation. Eskelin said it was eating well, but noted that its wing was badly damaged. "It looked like it had been on the ground for a little while," Eskelin said.
