National Bald Eagle Day

Bald Eagle at Phillip and Patricia Frost Museum of Science, Downtown Miami

The Falcon Batchelor Raptor Rehabilitation Center at Phillip and Patricia Frost Museum of Science in Downtown Miami “is dedicated to the rehabilitation and release of injured birds, and specializes in native and migratory raptors of Florida.” First opened in 1991, the rehabilitation center treats as many as 700 birds each year, with a few – like this American Bald Eagle – becoming permanent residents of the center due to their injuries.

American Eagle Day and National Bald Eagle Day are used interchangeably, as the day we celebrate the national bird of the United States of America.
