Bald Eagle wearing GoPro flies over Lincoln Financial Field before Eagles-Cowboys game

A cool first-person view.

Have you ever wondered what it's like to be a Bald Eagle soaring above Lincoln Financial Field during the National Anthem prior to Philadelphia Eagles kickoff? Of course you have, and now you can see exactly what it looks like from a bird's-eye view.

Pretty cool stuff. Here's some more information about the bird.

"Challenger is a 25-year old non-releasable male Bald Eagle cared for by the non-profit American Eagle Foundation. This majestic bird has become a free-flying educational ambassador for his species, soaring through hundreds of stadiums, arenas, ballrooms, and classrooms across the U.S. since 1991. He was blown from his nest at 5-weeks of age and rescued by well-meaning people who proceeded to hand-raise him. As a result, he became imprinted for life."

Note that Challenger is not to be confused with Noah, who is a 13-year-old bald eagle that is in the possession of the Elmwood Park Zoo.
