James D. Elliott, Jr., director of the Center for Birds of Prey, releases a young Bald Eagle at Brookgreen Gardens. Rescued in July on a golf course in Murrells Inlet, the year-old eagle suffered from the avian pox virus and is known as "bird 7,000" because she was the 7,000th bird rehabilitated at the The Avian Medical Clinic at the Center for Birds of Prey. The center admits 600 injured birds a year for medical treatment and eventual release back into their natural habitat.
