(AP) -- Experts at the University
of Illinois Wildlife Medical Clinic
are treating an injured golden eagle that appears to have lost its way.
The bird was rescued last week near Sadorus
(suh-DOHR'-uhs), about 10 miles south of Champaign.
The eagle has a broken bone in its left wing.
Dr. Julia Whittington says it's rare for the
clinic to treat a golden eagle. They're usually found in the western U.S. and typically migrate to Mexico.
Whittington says this bird may have gotten lost and been blown off course to Illinois.
She says golden eagles have a brown head
with a golden sheen and are larger than the bald eagles typically found in Illinois.
Whittington says it will take four to six
weeks for the bird to heal.
