LORTON, Va. (AP) - The Wildlife Center of Virginia is set to release another bald eagle that's been nursed back to health.

The release is scheduled for Thursday at Mason Neck State Park in Fairfax County.

The eagle was brought to the Waynesboro-based Wildlife Center after being found on the ground near its nest May 20 in Fort Washington, Md. The bird had a swollen tail and some missing feathers and was treated with medication.

Last week in Charles City County, the Wildlife Center released three young bald eagles whose mother was killed by a plane.

The Wildlife Center has treated scores of bald eagles since its founding in 1982.
