Scout arrived at the American Eagle Foundation in July 2017. She had been treated earlier that year at a rehabilitation center in Florida for avian pox, a virus that left her covered in sores/lesions. Post treatment she was released back into the wild but failed to thrive. She was found again, malnourished and begging for food at which point she was deemed non-releasable and found a permanent home at the AEF.
Scout was estimated to be just over 1 year old at the time of her arrival at the AEF. She has a slightly scarred beak that is a result from the avian pox and her beak requires a little extra care to keep it growing straight. One of Scout’s favorite activities is shredding cardboard boxes!
