PALO ALTO, Calif. (AP) - A radio transmitter, and a quail and mouse feast, has led to the capture of a California zoo's bald eagle after three days on the lam.

The Palo Alto Junior Museum and Zoo's tame 24-year-old bald eagle Sequoia was enjoying her daily exercise Saturday at a park when she was spooked by strong winds.

Instead of returning to handlers, she flew north and roosted in Menlo Park.

The San Jose Mercury News says Sequoia was tracked to a Redwood City tree on Monday.

The famished bird finally dropped from her perch to the arm of trainer John Flynn, who rewarded her with a quail and mouse feast.

Sequoia went on the lam eight times while at the San Francisco Zoo. She joined the Palo Alto zoo last year.
