A golden visitor

We received a Golden Eagle from another rehabilitation organization in Wasilla this past week. Alaska Wildbird Rehabilitation has had this bird for a while now. It was determined that it needed some flight time to build up it's strength to see if it can be released.

I took it out to our Flight Center on Wednesday. AWR doesn't have a facility like this. They have only been around about 2 years now.

I'll let you tell me what you think. Do you think this bird liked having a little more space to fly around more freely?

She is a little out of shape for flying, but once she gets that flight shape back we'll see how she'll do. I fed her a rabbit and then left her alone. I went back later on delivering some salmon, she was on the high perches.

That sort of looks like an "I'm happy to have room" hanging pose.
Or maybe it's practicing Yoga?
