Bald eagle returned to the wild after rehab at Indiana center

Updated:

A rare and beautiful site Sunday at Lake Monroe where a rescued bald eagle was set free.

He was actually discovered in Carmel after getting injured in a winter ice storm. The eagle had a concussion and spent the past two months rehabbing at the Indiana Raptor Center.

"You miss them; but on the other hand, the object of everything we do is to get these guys back where they go," said Laura Edmonds with the Indiana Raptor Center. "And to see a bald eagle take flight again...it's a mini-miracle for us. It's quite a thing to be a part of."

Right now, there are more than 100 pairs of bald eagles in the state thanks to efforts from the Indiana DNR.
