Contrary to popular belief, the eagle that flies from the Jordan-Hare Stadium to the field as part of Auburn's pregame festivities isn't always the War Eagle--today's bird (and a regular pregame performer) was a bald eagle named Spirit. And unfortunately for Spirit, today's pregame flight didn't go quite as smoothly as planned:
So yes, what you're watching there is an eagle fly into a plexiglass window, recover, and then somehow finish out its flight with no harm apparently done. No wonder it's found a home at Auburn.
