    Please take the time to watch the whole video. It will make your day.

    YOU'LL ENJOY THIS AMAZING BIRD! Read the narrative before viewing.

    Music video featuring a special free-flying Bald Eagle named 'Challenger' (in honor of the lost space shuttle crew) cared for by the non-profit American Eagle Foundation(AEF).

    He's a 'human-socialized' bird accidentally raised by the people who rescued him - after being blown from a wild Louisiana nest in a storm as a baby in the late 1980s. 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.

    Challenger has also flown before 4 U. S. Presidents!

    His life story is told in a children's storybook titled Challenger, America 's Favorite Eagle..'

It is God who made you noble among all creatures, making your home in thin, pure air. Without sowing or reaping, you receive God’s guidance and protection.”
