JUNEAU - A bald eagle named Mr. Peepers is set to be released by the Juneau Raptor Center.
The send-off for the adult male is scheduled for today.
The raptor center's Jamie Sorg said Mr. Peepers got his name because he was found by eye doctor Gordon Preecs.
Sorg said the eagle was found in February, apparently unable to thrive in the middle of winter.
Depending on the weather, the release is set for 3 p.m. from the Brotherhood Bridge parking lot.
