A bald eagle is at the Sarvey Wildlife Center in Arlington recovering after it was injured on I-5 Sunday afternoon.

A couple of good Samaritans and Washington State Patrol blocked off traffic near the UW.

Troopers covered the bird with a blanket and carried it off to the side of the road.
     
The animal was taken to the Sarvey Wildlife Center in Arlington where workers believe he is suffering from a concussion.

They do not believe the bird was hit by a car but say high winds could have knocked the eagle into a barrier.
