Aquila chrysaetos

Sundance was transferred to ONC in August 2009 from the Great Basin Wildlife Rehabilitation Center in Price, Utah. He sustained wing injuries from a gunshot wound, leaving him flightless. We are unsure of his exact age. Here at ONC, you will often find Sundance sitting on his perch, hopping around his mew, or on an Outreach Program. Sundance enjoys tearing apart pine bows and carboard boxes.
