During the summer, the Juneau Raptor Center displays Lady Baltimore, an adult bald eagle (Haliaeetus leucocephalus) who was rescued from Douglas Island (which neighbors Juneau) in May 2006. She had been shot in her beak and right wing wrist. She was also blind in her left eye from a detached retina. Her rescuers don't know if the detached retina was caused by the bullet to her beak. Whenever possible the Juneau Raptor Center releases rescued wildlife back into the wild. With only one eye, however, Lady Baltimore lacks depth perception and can easily run into things, so she can't be released into the wild. So Lady Baltimore serves as an animal ambassador on top of Mount Roberts.
The Juneau Raptor Center provides treatment and rehab for approximately 200 birds a year including eagles, swallows, owls, ravens, crows and other birds.
