A bald eagle has recovered from wing fractures and will be released Thursday by the Wildlife Center of Virginia.
The Waynesboro center said Tuesday that the adult eagle was found on Wescotts Beach near Eastville in December 2009. The eagle was stuck in a bush and broke its right wing in two places.
The center says the eagle may have been migrating south from New England or Canada when it suffered the injury.
On Thursday, the eagle will be released at Westover Plantation on the James River in Charles City County.
