September 26, 2014
Tens of thousands of eagle lovers and enthusiasts around the Globe have been watching the American Eagle Foundation’s High-Definition Video Cams placed over a wild nest in Northeast Florida—and for a very special reason. Two eggs have hatched over the past several days. One of those happened to hatch Christmas Day, December 25, 2014.
For over a month, Bald Eagle parents ‘Romeo’ and ‘Juliet’ have been faithfully taking turns incubating two eggs in their nest atop a 90-foot Longleaf pine tree in Northeast Florida. The first eaglet (NE3) hatched on December 23rd and its sibling (NE4) made its way into the world on Christmas Day.
A “Name The Eaglets Contest” will soon be announced, which will be made available to members of the Tennessee based non-profit organization American Eagle Foundation. This is quite possibly the cutest Christmas gift (to America) of the holiday season! Watch this Bald Eagle family raise their young over the next 14 weeks – “LIVE 24/7” – by visiting WWW.EAGLES.ORG.
