Sept. 25, 2013 A photo provided by Madrid’s regional government shows Madrid’s regional president, Ignacio Gonzalez, right, and Borja Sarasola, Madrid’s regional minister for the environment, after they released a Spanish Imperial Eagle (Adalbert’s Eagle) at Guadarrama’s Sierra national park near Rascafria, central Spain. The eagle, which had been in poor health, was rescued near Barajas airport and underwent rehabilitation at Madrid’s wildlife center. The Spanish Imperial Eagle is endangered because of habitat loss from deforestation and hunting. Carlos Iglesias/European Pressphoto Agency Buy Photo
