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.
