FINLEY, Wash.--Blue Mountain Wildlife officials released a baby Osprey today.
The two month old female got its legs caught trying to leave the nest at the Agrium plant in Finley a few weeks back. Agrium workers say the bird was injured and hanging upside down for at least five hours.
"The babies up there below the nest, we couldn't put her back in the nest," says Lynn Tompkins. It's too high, she probably would've just jumped out if we had. She's just learned how to fly.
Tompkins helped rehabilitate the bird at her wildlife compound in Pendleton, Oregon.
She says the mom or dad will eventually return to the nest and claim their little girl. Tompkins believes they left the nest to grab what else, but fish.
