In memory of Elmwood

Bald Eagle Elmwood

Elmwood

Bald Eagle
Haliaeetus leucocephalus

Elmwood passed away in April of 2024. She has touched countless lives, and will be missed. Adopt in Elmwood's memory to support all the birds at VINS.

Elmwood was found injured as a juvenile bird in Nebraska in 1999. She was rehabilitated at the Raptor Recovery Center in Elmwood, Nebraska. The injury to her wing required surgery resulting in the removal of her right wrist. This type of injury made it not possible for Elmwood to fly or hunt independently, but she was able to maneuver around a variety of levels in her enclosure. Elmwood transferred to VINS in 2000 and preferred to be a solo bald eagle ambassador.
