Injured bald eagle released back into the wild

BROOKSVILLE — A bald eagle has been released back into the wild after spending three months recovering at a Maitland bird center.

Eagle No. 512 was released Wednesday afternoon at a preserve near Brooksville.

The eagle was injured last year in a fight with a younger female bird. The younger bird had taken No. 512's nest, sparking the fight.

It was the second time wildlife officials had rehabilitated and released No. 512. The eagle was released near the same area in 1998 after recovering from gunshot wounds.
