Species: Bald Eagle (Haliaeetus leucocephalus)
Conservation Status: Least Concern
Sex: Male
Age: 6 years-Estimated hatching on September 3, 2008
Exhibit: North America-Northwoods-Bald Eagle Habitat
Personality: Despite his regal and intimidating appearance, Washington, like all Bald Eagles, can be very timid and also unpredictable. Specially trained handlers are required to take care of him and he is a poor choice for public educational shows.
Appearance: Washington is a large and handsome bird, with a wingspan of 2 m (6.5 ft) and weighing in at 5.4 kg (12 lbs), he is an impressive specimen even if he is smaller than Columbia, his female counterpart.
Origin: Found wild and injured on the side of a road in Oregon (presumably from a vehicle collision), Washington was brought to a local wildlife center and raised back to health. However he was not fit enough to be released back into the wild so the center started looking for a zoo or wildlife park that could take him, which is how he ended up at the Carolina Park Zoo and Aquarium. Since Washington's arrival Columbia was been sent to the zoo in 2012 from a wildlife center in Alaska and the two have become a pair.
Other Animals in Exhibit: 1 other Bald Eagle (Female). 2 Animals of 1 Species.
