Officials prep Decorah eagle for surgery

Officials say a young eagle in Decorah is being prepped for surgery to treat a broken wing.

The Raptor Resource Project says the bird's wing will be repaired in surgery Friday.  The eagle is expected to recover and be released back into the wild, but the reintroduction process could take more than a year.

Director Bob Anderson says the eagle, along with others, has kept away from its nest.  Officials think it's linked to a gnat infestation that could stress the birds.

The Raptor Resource Project is a nonprofit group that helps preserve various birds including falcons and eagles.
