Bald eagle reportedly injured in Suncoast Parkway accident near Spring Hill

The Hernando Audubon Society reported an accident Tuesday that injured an adult bald eagle on the Suncoast Parkway between Bowman Road and County Line Road near Spring Hill.

The eagle was visibly hurt, according to an Audubon report, but wildlife rescuers couldn't find it when they arrived.

The society asked that people living in the area keep an eye out for the injured bird and call (813) 920-5495 or (727) 798-2385 if they see it. They do not recommend attempting to handle the eagle, but instead maintain visual contact with it until rescuers arrive.
