Bald Eagle Wows NFL Fans During National Anthem
Challenger the Bald Eagle soars into an NFL stadium during the National Anthem...wearing a camera! In an effort to educate the public about the importance and beauty of this majestic species, this video was created to show what it looks like from an eagle's point of view during flight! Let's keep the USA's symbol of freedom flying strong and free! This video was taken at the Texans vs. Bengals "Salute to Service" game at NRG Stadium in Houston, Texas on November 23rd, 2014. Thanks for sponsoring this flight, Texans! Challenger is a 25-year-old non-releasable male Bald Eagle cared for by the non-profit American Eagle Foundation. This majestic bird has become a free-flying educational ambassador for his species, soaring through hundreds of stadiums, arenas, ballrooms, and classrooms across the U.S. since 1991. He was blown from his nest at 5-weeks of age and rescued by well-meaning people who proceeded to hand-raise him. As a result, he became imprinted for life.
