SEQUIM –– A pair of young bald eagles nursed back to health through the cooperation of three Olympic Peninsula bird-rescue organizations were released back into the wild from a point at the Dungeness River on Saturday (Sept.21).

Cindy Daily of the nonprofit Discovery Bay Raptor Rehabilitation and Education Center took in the two injured eagles this summer. One was found in the backyard of Richard and Nancy Stanton in Nordland on July 30. The other was saved by a U.S. Marine fishing on the Quilcene River on Aug. 17.

“It’s been wonderful to watch both of them get back to health, and I can’t wait to see them both get to be back in the wild,” Daily said. “It’s the whole point of our existence.”
