Eagle at Mason Neck State Park
The wing bumpers removed, Ed prepares to release the eagle, who seems very eager to be free. "I'm going to hold the eagle as I answer a few questions, and then I'll warn you before I free the eagle. If all works well, she'll fly away. However, I should warn you, if you see an eruption of red fluid that looks like my blood, I'll be releasing her early." (Nervous laughter from crowd.) Note reaction of police officer to the bird's struggles.
