“While our efforts continue, it is important to note that eagles are very resilient birds and in the wild, they do not eat every day,” the Aviary said in a statement. “Kodiak is in excellent health and body condition, and this species is acclimated to a multitude of weather conditions.

They urge the public not to approach the eagle if they see him because he may get spooked and fly away.

Instead, they ask anyone who sees him, call 412-323-7235.
