Fine Feathered Friend

JAYE MOORE OF THE NORTHWEST RAPTOR CENTER IN SEQUIM, CLALLAM COUNTY, COMFORTS A 5 1/2-WEEK-OLD BALD-EAGLE CHICK AFTER IT WAS BROUGHT DOWN FROM ITS NEST HIGH IN A TREE AT SEQUIM BAY STATE PARK YESTERDAY. EARLIER, A SIBLING HAD FALLEN OUT OF THE NEST AND BROKEN ITS WING. WILDLIFE RESEARCHER TIMOTHY BROWN, WHO RETRIEVED THE CHICK, BELIEVES ITS MOTHER ALSO HAD BROKEN A WING AND COULD NO LONGER CARE FOR HER OFFSPRING. RAPTOR-CENTER STAFF WERE ABLE TO TRACK THE PROCEEDINGS THROUGH A SMALL TV CAMERA THEY'D PLACED IN THE TREE.
