Bald eagle that survived winter storm finds home at Houston Zoo

Heroic bird endured a critical wing injury that almost killed her

A bald eagle who survived Winter Storm Uri in February has a new Texas home. 

Mae, named after Mae Jemison, the first Black female astronaut in space, moved into the Houston Zoo last month, as KRIV reported after she suffered an open wing fracture during the snowstorm.

A game warden in Huxley found Mae during the blizzard, which claimed more than 100 lives.

The bird was later treated at a wildlife rehabilitation center for birds of prey and then an animal hospital in Lufkin. 

Although Mae's wing was severely fractured and infected, she still has been impaired from flying.
