(KING 5) A juvenile bald eagle is back home in the Nisqually forest nearly a month after it nearly drowned. It wasn't that long ago that this juvenile bald eagle nearly lost its young life to the Nisqually River.
It's why Nisqually Chaplain Bob Sison is blessing the bird and blessing its journey back into the wild.
"I hope he stays around here," said Tom Friedrich.
Friedrich and Nano Perez were fishing about a month ago when thought they spotted a beaver limping out of the water. The soon realized the beaver was a bird....watch the video and read more.

A mild winter and early spring have moved up baby animal season by about a month, and wild babies are already showing up at animal rescues, according to Claudia Supensky, who runs For Heaven’s Sake Rescue and Rehabilitation in Thurston County.

The State of Washington found out and brought her here to For Heaven’s Sake Animal Rescue and Rehabilitation in rural Thurston County. Willow lets me rub her ears. I’m equal parts amazed and confused. She finds Claudia Supensky and begins to sniff. “In the wild, deer smell each other’s breath to identify each other,” says Supensky.
This is Willow’s home now. She can never be released into the wild. Instead, she and another doe are used to help teach rescued fawns how to be deer. The fawns, like most of the animals at For Heaven’s Sake, will eventually be returned to nature....read more.
