2014—Tesla

Tesla, a California Foundation for Birds of Prey education bird, is a Golden Eagle who survived electrocution many years ago after landing on a power line and plummeting to the ground, breaking her shoulder. She lost talons on her left foot from the electrocution but the broken shoulder prevented her release back to the wild and sealed her fate as an education bird. She was on display at the San Francisco Caledonian Club’s Annual Scottish Gathering and Games over Labor Day weekend. In this shot, she had just been spritzed with water to cool her down. The water drops show on her head and neck.
