AUBURN, Alabama -- Auburn University's Southeastern Raptor Center has successfully released a bald eagle nearly a year after its apparent crash into a fisheries pond on campus.

The eagle took flight Saturday at the E.W. Shell Fisheries Center where workers discovered the bird of prey in one of the fishery ponds.

While eagles feed on fish -- swooping down and plucking them from the water with sharp talons -- it is not known exactly how the large bird ended up in the pond.
