CHATTANOOGA, Tenn. — The rescue of a young bald eagle on New Year's Day came full circle Wednesday when the rehabilitated bird was reintroduced to the wild near the Chickamauga Dam.

As the bird named Signal raised its wings to the wind, it seemed to hover several beats before heading out over the water. In a few moments, it reappeared and made a quick circle over the small crowd below.
