March 14th 2017
(Washington, DC) — Last night and this morning, famous female bald eagle ‘The First Lady’ hunkered down over her two fragile eggs, protecting them from Winter Storm Stella. For several hours, her mate ‘Mr. President’ added an extra layer of warmth inside their wild nest at the U.S. National Arboretum in Washington, DC…warming the hearts of viewers across the globe. Millions of people are awaiting the hatching of eaglets DC4 & DC5, which is expected to happen the last week of March. The DC Eagle Cam Project (dceaglecam.org) is a cooperative public education project between the American Eagle Foundation (www.eagles.org) and the US Department of Agriculture.
