America's favorite Eagle
A good way to spend a few moments with audio.
CHECK OUT THE Bald Eagle video below ...
'Challenger' is his name (in honor of the lost space shuttle crew) & is cared for by the non-profit American Eagle Foundation (AEF).
He's a 'human-socialized' bird raised by the people who rescued him - after being
blown from a wild Louisiana nest in a storm as a baby in the late 1980's. Declared 'non-releasable' by federal and state wildlife authorities, he was trained by the AEF
to perform educational free-flight demonstrations at high profile public events.
He's the first Bald Eagle in U.S. History that learned to free-fly into stadiums, arenas and ballrooms during the singing of the Star Spangled Banner. The celebrity eagle has appeared at numerous major sporting events like the World Series, Pro-Bowl, All-Star Game, BCS National Championship, Fiesta Bowl, Men's Final Four, etc.
This eagle named Challenger has also flown before 4 U.S. Presidents!
