The Orphaned Wildlife Rehabilitation Society (OWL) said farewell to one of Delta's famous eagles this week.

On Thursday, OWL released a bald eagle that was rescued on June 19 after it fell from its nest as a fledgling. The nest was known as Delta2 and was one of the eagle nests being shown on the Eagle Live Cams online.

The Hancock Foundation put cameras in several nests this spring and provided live footage around the clock online. The nest was one of two in Delta and four in the Lower Mainland being monitored and broadcast online.

The young eagle fell from the nest before it was ready to fly on its own. OWL staff rescued the bird and it has spent the past month getting strong enough to fly.
