Noah will be taken to a hack tower at an undisclosed location to learn to fly, hunt and survive in the wild.

A hack tower is a wooden elevated structure where Noah will live for about six weeks.  The doors to the hack tower will be closed at first and eventually opened so Noah can fly in and out.

Before Noah is released into the wild it will be outfitted with a tracking device that pings off of cell phones so Carolina Raptor Center staff can keep track of the eagle.

Noah is named in honor of Lance Cpl. Noah Pier, 25, who was killed in combat Feb. 16 in southern Afghanistan.

The eaglet hatched Feb. 12, 2010.
