Officials with a California zoo said a tame bald eagle returned to her trainer's arm after three days on the loose.

John Aikin, executive director of the Palo Alto Junior Museum and Zoo, said the 24-year-old bird, named Sequoia, appeared to become upset by strong winds during her daily exercise Saturday at Byxbee Park and she roosted in Menlo Park instead of returning to her handlers, the Palo Alto Daily News reported Tuesday.

Officials said the bird was seen Monday in the Friendly Acres neighborhood of Redwood City and returned to the arm of trainer John Flynn around nightfall.

"It's like having a kid," Aikin said Monday. "You know your kid is probably going to make the right choices, but you still can't help but worry a little bit."

"This is not to be unexpected," the trainer said of Sequoia's time on the loose. "It's not the first time it's happened. And I don't think it's the last."
