A beautiful bald eagle has been released into the wild Friday by specialists with Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission.

The eagle was released into the wild after rehabilitation. MyFWC Facebook page posted images and video of the bird’s release. They didn’t specify what had happened to the bird to put it into the rehabilitation.

Florida has the largest population of the bald eagles in the lower 48 states, our state is the home to more than 1000 nesting pairs according to FWC’s website. FWC has monitored the eagle population for more than 30 years.
