Trout Creek girl release 5/24
Flying to Freedom

During the 2014-15 eagle season, Hillsborough County had its share of eaglets falling out of their nests. The first eaglet to be found on the ground literally fell with her nest and was not able to be saved, sadly. The other three eaglets that fell from their nests in Brandon, Flatwoods, and Trout Creek were found, rescued, rehabilitated and released back into nature where they belong. The Trout Creek girl was just released this past Memorial Day Weekend [see photo]. It is a beautiful thing to see each of these juvenile eagles fly to freedom.
