ST. LOUIS (KSDK) - They're our national bird and pretty soon hundreds of kids are going to see them up close.

Teri Graves with the World Bird Sanctuary was kind enough to bring a bald eagle down to First @ 4 on Thursday.

It might seem strange to have the birds out of the sanctuary, but for the past 20 years the World Bird Sanctuary has partnered with Dow Chemical in Pevely for an Eagle Day.
