In his 11th appearance at a World Series game, Bald Eagle Challenger rocked the house with a perfect flight during the National Anthem.
The American Eagle Foundation’s trained non-releasable bald eagle “Challenger” will free-fly during the presentation of the Star Spangled Banner right before Game 3 of the World Series on Friday evening (Oct. 27, 2017) between the Houston Astros and the Los Angeles Dodgers at Minute Maid Park in Houston, TX.
Challenger has a busy schedule during the Fall. Check out recent stadium appearances Fall 2017.
For the 5th consecutive year, the American Eagle Foundation has received the highest rating possible from Charity Navigator: 4 Stars!
Southwest is honored to be a part of Challenger’s Team as he gears up to take flight.
‘Spirit’ has a new home. At the American Eagle Foundation, Spirit had very limited opportunities to educate and interact with the public, as she was a “gloves only” eagle. It was determined that the Raptor Rehabilitation of Kentucky would be a perfect fit for Spirit, where she can be an excellent glove educational ambassador.
ER2, ER3, & HB all successfully fledged from AEF’s hack tower on Douglas Lake July 25, 2017.
The 2017 “So The World May Hear” Starkey Gala set a record attendance, and once again, the AEF and Bald Eagle Mr. Lincoln played an important part.
In British Columbia, a little Red-tailed hawk was successfully raised in a Bald Eagle nest, along with 3 eaglets!
