Hatched in 1988, Atticus was originally part of a release program in Minnesota that aimed to increase Bald Eagle numbers in the wild. However, he sustained a wing injury and ended up back in human care when he was only a year old. Despite several release attempts, he was unable to thrive on his own and instead joined the education program at Georgia Southern University. In the fall of 2016, he came to the Raptor Center and he found his forever home.

Compared to most Bald Eagles, Atticus is quite small, and it’s suspected that his genetics might originate in Florida, where the warmer weather is associated with a smaller size in this species.
