On New Years Eve a semi truck, with trailer, hit a large eagle near Horne Lake, shattering the windshield. Fortunately the driver was not hurt and actually assisted in the rescue of the bird, after calling MARS. Semi was very stunned, but has no obvious broken bones, though there may be internal damage or broken ribs that we haven't found. She is a very strong, healthy bird and we are hoping for a complete recovery, since she is now standing on her own, though she is in obvious pain.
Jan 7 update: Semi is no longer standing, but lying on her belly. X-rays show that she has a fractured pelvis which is stable and may heal with time and support.
