Earth Day Eagle Release
On Friday, April 21, our Bald Eagle was ready for release and we took him back to the Six Mile Creek area - his home near Scranton, Arkansas. Tagging along with us were several photographers, including one from Russellville's newspaper, The Courier. We chose a beautiful spot on Water Plant Road which had a good vantage point for the bird and for his audience. As Dr. Davis opened the carrier, our eagle made no haste in jumping out as quickly as possible and soaring over the water while we all gasped in wonder. His flight was strong and marvelous. The joy we all felt was indescribable. Just watch the video yourself! (warning: 4.84 mb download) Now, THAT's what it's all about!!!
