Sending them home


College of Veterinary Medicine dean Lisa Nolan (light red jacket) and vice president for research and economic development Sharron Quisenberry (green jacket) prepare to release two American bald eagles back to the wild during a well-attended event at Story County Conservation's McFarland Park March 24. One of the birds received several days of care in ISU's department of veterinary clinical services for lead poisoning. Both birds spent several weeks in rehabilitation at SOAR (Save Our Avian Resources), a nonprofit organization in southern Carroll County. Photo by Bob Elbert.
