Trio of golden eagles set for release in Arizona

MAYER, Ariz. -- Three golden eagles that have been nursed back to health are set to be released into the wild.

Biologists with the Arizona Game and Fish Department plan to release the eagles Friday morning near Mayer in Yavapai County.

Staff at the department's Adobe Mountain Wildlife Center has been caring for the birds that were either injured or in poor health. An identification band on one of the eagles indicates it was born in Oregon.

Game and Fish officials said little is known about Arizona's golden eagle population and its habitat. Helicopter surveys have helped identify more than 160 breeding areas.

The wildlife center treats more than 1,000 sick and injured animals each year. Money from Arizona Lottery sales helps fund the center.
