Bald Eagle
One of CCEEC’s highest profile residents is a bald eagle, whom we named Gen. George Patton. The eagle was admitted with life-threatening injuries in 2001, and sadly, is unable to be returned to the wild.

Frederick Renshaw Wallace, master falconer and CCEEC volunteer, undertook the monumental task of training or “manning” this eagle for use in programs. Thanks to his dedicated efforts, this is one of the best-behaved birds on the raptor education circuit.

When Fred Wallace passed away in 2004, we chose to recognize the special bond he forged with the bald eagle by re-naming the bird Renshaw in his honor.

Renshaw was hatched in the wild in the spring of 2000. Roughly one year later, he suffered an eye injury, wing injury, a concussion, and brain damage as the result of a car strike. Auto accidents are a common cause of injury to birds of prey, though this was the first car-strike eagle ever admitted to CCEEC.
