A bald eagle chick is moved out of the chick lab and into a large barn nearby by workers wearing “ghost costumes” at the Sutton Avian Research Center’s incubation room near Bartlesville, OK. This chick was hatched in captivity as part of the Bald Eagle Recovery Act. After the chick is seven days old, it will never see nor hear its human host in order to keep the bird wild.
