Beauty the Eagle 10 Years Ago

From April and May 2008: Just over 10 years ago, I photographed an eagle named Beauty, who had lost her her upper beak to a gunshot wound. Birds of Prey Northwest in St. Maries, ID, cared for Beauty and was also where she also went through surgery to receive a prosthetic beak. 📷 for the AP. Original story before surgery: https://news.nationalgeographic.com/news/2008/05/080505-AP-eagle-photo.html Surgery story: http://www.nbcnews.com/id/25000280/ns/technology_and_science-science/t/eagle-wounded-poacher-gets-new-beak/#.WwRUulMvwWo

Bionic Beak

Within a few months a more permanent beak made of titanium will replace the polymer plastic beak that was used today. (AP Photo/Young Kwak)
