Freedom is a falcon that was owned by Diggs.
When Bart was being bullied by Jimbo, Dolph and Kearney, Freedom swooped down and attacked them. Bart and Diggs both went out a lot to watch Freedom fly, feed him and watch him do tricks. When Diggs was in the hospital, Bart took care of Freedom at his house. Bart then took Freedom back to the Springfield Elementary Falconry Club, where he met Diggs again who then entered Freedom into a falconry contest. At the contest, Diggs released all the other falcons out and they all went free, along with Freedom.
