You answered a question below about why Rufus doesn't fly away and the answer you gave was the relationship between you and Rufus as his handler and the role food plays in training. For years and years my college has had an eagle that flies around the stadium before games (no not Auburn) and a couple years ago, after never once straying from its trained path the eagle completely bailed halfway through the circle and ended getting it back like a hour later over by where people were tailgating. I'm curious with your knowledge and experience with bird training if you'd have any idea why such a well trained and intelligent bird would do that? Maybe the tailgating food or something? Thanks for doing this, you're job seems very interesting and fulfilling
