The bird was born wild and injured by gunshot in Florida in 1985. She was brought to Birmingham for treatment and rehabilitation and later went on exhibit, settling into the Alabama Wilds area of the zoo when it opened in 2005. She shared her enclosure with a male eagle named Gonzo.
Camilla reached 10 pounds and stood three feet tall. As is typical for the species, she was a good bit larger than her male companion. The pair had nine offspring, five of which have been released into the wild.
