AEF in the Media
On Thursday morning, June 28th, the non-profit American Eagle Foundation (AEF) will release Three 12-week-old Bald Eaglets into the wild to honor local first responders for Pigeon Forge, Sevierville, and Gatlinburg.
Challenger the eagle has become a source of inspiration and an unofficial mascot for fans of the Philadelphia Eagles.
The country owes thanks to Al Cecere, the volunteers and staff at the American Eagle Foundation, and to the many volunteers, conservation agency staffers, and other nonprofit organizations doing their best every day to keep an eagle eye on the raptor populations and make sure the majestic Bald Eagle and other birds of prey are with us long into the future.
Famous Bald Eagle pair, Mr. President & The First Lady, have welcomed their first egg of 2017 into their Washington DC nest.
Nest cam fans from around the world recently participated in a “Name the Nestlings” social media campaign to suggest names for “DC2” and “DC3” the two eaglets currently residing in the U.S. National Arboretum in Washington, D.C. Thousands of names were submitted via the hashtag campaign, and now five of the most popular suggested name pairs and are being put to a final public vote!
Millions of people were glued to their computers and mobile devices this week watching dceaglecam.eagles.org and waiting for the eggs of ‘Mr. President’ & ‘The First Lady’ to hatch LIVE on the Washington D.C. Eagle Nest Cam.
The American Eagle Foundation (AEF) and the cooperative partners of the project are proud to announce that there are now two healthy eaglets residing in the nest that sits high in a Tulip Poplar tree in the U.S. National Arboretum, right inside the Nation’s Capitol.

Since mid-February, hundreds of thousands of viewers have tuned into dceaglecam.eagles.org to watch two live-streaming, high definition cameras featuring the wild nest of Bald Eagles “Mr. President” & “The First Lady.” These parents have been faithfully incubating two eggs at the top of a Tulip Poplar tree in the U.S. National Arboretum, right inside the Nation’s Capitol.
Their devoted attention and dedicated efforts finally began to pay off last night, as the first eaglet began its “pipping” process! “Pipping” occurs when an eaglet uses the tip of its beak to break through the internal membrane and the outer shell of its egg.
The tens of thousands of viewers who have become addicted to watching Bald Eagles “Mr. President” & “The First Lady” on the D.C. Eagle Nest Cam (dceaglecam.org) may want to keep their eyes glued to their computer screens this week to hopefully see two fuzzy eaglets hatch from their eggs.
