    Dear Folks,
    This is 'heart warming' . . .

    Please 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.'

    P.S. . . . while you're in "U-Tube", if you have a few minutes, you might enjoy
    Lee Greenwood w/the eagle "Challenger" at a graduation, singing "I'm Proud to be an
    American" . . . also Dolly Parton releasing the eagle "Liberty" . . . additionally, Dolly
    Parton (w/videos) singing "Eagle when she flies".
