I did a search on the Texas Department of Parks and Wildlife. The only species of eagle I could find in Texas is the bald eagle, which apparently tops out at 14 pounds. Assuming a 6 pound infant, that's nearly a 50% increase in weight. I don't know that the bird would have enough lift at that kind of a weight increase to fly.
