VERMILION, Ohio — A baby eaglet was rescued and nursed back to health after its nest fell in Vermilion.

The Medina Raptor Center posted on its Facebook page that it got a call on May 31 from the Division of Wildlife about the large nest on the ground.

When they arrived, they found one baby crushed and the other soaking wet. The parents were not in the area.

The center says it kept the eaglet inside for two weeks to fatten him up and work on temperature regulation. He’s now in a larger cage with a view of a larger eagle.

The eaglet will be traveling to Tennessee to the American Eagle Foundation next week to be raised and released, the center says.
