Actually Auburn gets their bird from Georgia Southern. GSU is the home of the southern raptor center, and pretty much any bird you see on tv or at sports stadiums were at one time at the center. They rehab as many of them as they can and release them, but some have to be hand fed etc while rehabing and become too used to humans to release. Interesting sidenote, earlier in the season Freedom, the eagle, took a detour on the way down to the field when it spotted a rat running around in the parking lot. After he got his snack, he just waited in the parking lot for the the handler to come get him.
