I was excited to hear about this story of the release of a rehabilitated bald eagle at one of our City of Prescott Lakes.

Dugas, Rehabilited Bald Eagle Released at Watson Lake, Prescott

Those who attended the release of a rehabilitated bald eagle Monday at Watson Lake got a real thrill out of seeing the magnificent bird up close and then witnessing it fly, healthy and free, into the wild. A rancher discovered the bird on the Dugas Road near Mayer in March, and called Game & Fish.

The eagle was not able to fly, and appeared ill, so Game & Fish officials took it to Wild at Heart, a raptor rehabilitation center in Cave Creek. Directors Bob and wife, Sam Fox named him Dugas.

Read the whole story.

Prescott has a number of small lakes nearby. These include Goldwater Lake, Granite Basin Lake, Lynx Lake, Watson and Willow Lake.

Watson Lake is the closest-in of the Prescott Lakes. It is quite small in size but big in drama.
