I understand she might only be exercising here for another week before her feathers will start to molt and will not return until the fall.
This was my first time being so close to a flying eagle.

The handlers form a triangle at different areas of the park. One handler blows his whistle and waves a yummy piece of raw meat to entice her to fly to him. Then the next handler blows his whistle and the whole process starts over again until they run out of food.
