Auburn Tigers vs. War Eagle: does Auburn have two mascots?

Auburn does not have two mascots. Auburn’s athletics teams are the Tigers and the tiger mascot’s name is Aubie. War Eagle is Auburn’s battle cry and the symbol is a live golden eagle named Aurea, or War Eagle VIII, who lives at the Auburn University Raptor Center in the university’s College of Veterinary Medicine. At the beginning of each football game, an eagle circles Jordan-Hare Stadium to the cries of “Warrrrrrrrr Eagle, Hey!” from fans. In addition to Aurea, a bald eagle named Independence, or Indy for short, also flies at games. While Auburn flies a bald eagle at times, the official War Eagle symbol is a golden eagle and only golden eagles are approved as part of officially licensed product designs.
