Dr. Kathleen Ramsay and her son, Ty, treat a young bald eagle rescued in Artesia for lead poisoning. The bird, named Pecos, was recovered in December from a local roping arena. Weak and unable to fly, it was taken to the Desert Willow Wildlife Rehabilitation Center in Carlsbad by the New Mexico Department of Game and Fish. Ramsay, who happened to be visiting the center from Espanola, recognized the signs of lead poisoning and transported the eagle to her clinic, the Santa Fe Raptor Center in Santa Fe. Pecos responded well to treatment and will be released at noon Sunday from the east boat ramp at Brantley Lake State Park.  Courtesy Photo
