Free Bird! Let That Eaglet Fly Free

A little bald eaglet was the reason why members of the Philadelphia Zoo made a road trip to Bucks County Thursday.

The six-week-old baby bird was born in captivity at the Zoo but officials want him, or her, to grow up in the wild.

To pull off the mission they hoisted the eaglet up a transmission tower where a wild eagle's nest sits.

The hope is that the wild birds will foster the chick and it will blend in with the rest of the wild eagle brood, according to officials.
