FORT MYERS, Fla. - The Clinic for Rehabilitation of Wildlife (CROW) released a fledgling bald eagle near its Fort Myers nest Tuesday. 

The fledgling was rescued in the same area April 27 after it was observed on the ground without being provided food for over 24 hours, CROW said. 

When admitted, volunteers said the eagle was thin and mildly anemic. After one week of iron, B12 vitamins and plenty of food, the fledgling was on the mend. 

Flights to the top of the Large Flight enclosure told volunteers the fledgling was ready to be released.
