Naples resident Geraldine Martin, Corkscrew Sanctuary director Ed Carlson and Florida Division of Forestry forest ranger Anthony Curella, left to right, release a rehabilitated male American bald eagle into the Picayune Strand State Forest on Tuesday, April, 13, 2010, in Collier County. Curella and fellow ranger Mike Murnhan discovered the eagle Feb. 10 unable to fly because of clipped flight feathers on its wings. After two months of rehabilitation at the Audubon Center for Birds of Prey in Maitland north of Orlando, the bird was re-released April 13 back into the state park. Martin is among the largest local donors to the Audubon of Florida and was given the opportunity to personally release the eagle.
