This is a majestic traveler.
TSA agents at North Carolina’s Charlotte-Douglas International Airport recently examined a bald eagle named Clark who was traveling with his handler.
On Thursday, the Twitter account for the TSA Southeast District posted photos of Clark as he and his handlers walked through the safety line.

“TSA officers are used to seeing an eagle in their uniform looking over their shoulder, but I’m sure the team at CLTAirport Checkpoint A did double duty when they saw an actual eagle earlier this week,” the agency wrote on Twitter.
“Our special guest was Clark the Eagle from the World Bird Sanctuary, who decided to give his wings a rest and launch a commercial,” the agency said in a second tweet. “His airline notified us and we screened and processed him.”

Clark was traveling home to World Bird Sanctuary after flying in at High Point University’s invitational party to welcome his freshman class, according to the sanctuary’s Facebook page.
Clark is one of four bald eagles that travel around the country to fly for different places and events, according to the World Bird Sanctuary website.

The website says that Clarke was conceived in 2002 at the Birds of the World sanctuary as part of a project to breed bald eagles, which were endangered at the time, back into the wild.
The site says Clarke had size deformities on his feet that would have left them unprotected from the cold temperatures of the winter, so he stayed at the shelter while his siblings were all released.
