VIDEO: Bald eagle takes flight

JACKSON HOLE, WYO – In front of a crowd of 40 or so, Teton Raptor Center members released a rehabilitated bald eagle after it spent a month at their facilities in Wilson. The five-year old male eagle was the first bald eagle released on TRC property.
Raptor expert Jason Jones gave a brief background which included pointing out two bald eagles flying fighting over territory overhead at the time of the release. TRC board member Len Carlman performed the honors, insisting the U.S. and Wyoming state flags be flown in light of the symbolic bird.
The eagle stalled briefly when its hood was removed, landing in front of the ‘oohing’ and ‘aahing’ crowd, then lifted off for a nearby tree while it figured out its surroundings.
