Bald eagle plants herself in Palo Alto

Original post made on Nov 18, 2012

The Palo Alto Junior Museum and Zoo has been known as many things over the decades, but it's safe to say that a retirement home hasn't been one of them -- until now.

We need more feel-good stories like this in times like now. Great story!

She's beautiful! Thank you to the Junior Museum and Zoo for adopting her and to the Brin Wojcicki Foundation for providing the means for her comfortable retirement.

Nice to know that the Brin Wojcicki Foundation is helping out animals.

This is wonderful news and gave me chills! Now all I have to do is find out when Sequoia will be out for those "educational" periods so that I too can experience her beautiful presence!

Just wondering if the headline writer considered "lady" & "perched" as in "Lady Bald eagle perched in Palo Alto"?

Such a magnificent creature! May Sequoia enjoy her new home for many, many years. Thank you to the Brin Wojcicki Foundation for making this possible.

I wish we could see her on display. I could imagine there might be good reason to not have her out all the time, but the options for seeing her seem really limited and totally undefined.

"Unlike other animals at the Palo Alto Zoo, Sequoia will not be on display for the general public but rather used for educational programs and events."

What does that mean? Available for a fee for private parties?
