Rehabilitated bald eagle to be released to the wild in E. Manatee

An American bald eagle found with a broken leg earlier this year will be released back into the wild on Wednesday.

Save Our Sea Birds will release the adult eagle about 1 p.m. at a cell phone tower on Lena Road in East Manatee, near where she was found eight weeks ago, according to a news release.

The bird recovered from its injury at Save Our Seabirds in Sarasota.

"She flies beautifully and is now to be released in time for the migration north," the release states.
