A bald eagle in the care of an East Tennessee-based nonprofit took flight during the national anthem of a Houston Texans home game Sunday, and, with the help of an action camera, captured a breathtaking view. 

Watch the resulting video below.

 

 

The bald eagle, Challenger, is cared for by the American Eagle Foundation, a group headquartered in Pigeon Forge.

Challenger serves as an "ambassador for his species," helping to raise awareness about the need to restore and protect America's eagles, natural resources and environment, according to the group's website.
