Have Bird Questions? Ask a Bird Specialist.
Sorry you had to wait. The question was just transfered over to me for assistance. My name is ***** ***** I have been a Vet tech for 30+ years. I suspect the stress of being caught in the Fly strip, started a downward spiral causing his heart to give out. Birds do not deal well with stress and the heart beat and pulse is much more rapid than ours. Struggling with the Fly strip started a burst of adrenelin and started to put a strain on the heart. The nest sequences of events continued to tax the heart, between the two cleanings and the falls. You did everything possible to help Eagle, but unfortunately Birds are very sensitive to situations as as things in their surroundings. The only way to have a positive reason for the Death would be to have a Necropsy done by a Veterinary Pathologist. I am sorry for the loss. I hope this adds some closure for you. If I have addressed your concerns, Please take a moment to Rate my Service 5 Stars.
