Father's Day http://wxpr.org en Bald Eagle Models Foster Parenting http://wxpr.org/post/bald-eagle-models-foster-parenting <p>This Father’s Day weekend, we take a look at a story of model parenting from an unlikely place: the world of birds. &nbsp;We meet a bald eagle who’s done a remarkable job as a foster father to over a hundred and fifty orphaned chicks.</p><p><span style="line-height: 1.5;">They call him Amp.&nbsp;</span></p><blockquote><p><em>“People are always surprised when I say we have a foster dad eagle.&nbsp; And they’re like, “well where’s the mom?” Well, it would be great if we had a mom…but we don’t have a non-releasable mom .&nbsp; And he does such a great job.”</em></p> Fri, 14 Jun 2013 14:19:18 +0000 Natalie Jablonski 3646 at http://wxpr.org Bald Eagle Models Foster Parenting
