During October and November, 2016, Challenger has been making appearances in many stadiums and convention centers throughout the United States.
On August 11th, the American Eagle Foundation (AEF) reintroduced an adult Bald Eagle back into the wild after months of rehabilitation. The AEF named the eagle “Summitt” in honor of and in memory of former Lady Vols Coach, Pat Summitt.
This was a monumental summer for the AEF, we released 5 more captive-hatched and translocated eaglets into the wild…with our last release of the summer marking our 150th eaglet set free into the wild from our Douglas Lake “Hack Tower” in East Tennessee!
On Friday morning, June 24th, the non-profit American Eagle Foundation (AEF) released a 13-week-old Bald Eaglet named “Hope” (patagial tag “H6”) into the wild to remember and honor the 49 victims who were recently killed in the Orlando mass shooting on June 12th, 2016.
The male eagle “Liberty” at the National Arboretum fledged from his nest tree at 6:12 am on June 9th.
The sale of nearly 6000 Limited-Edition DC Eagle Cam T-shirts has assisted in keeping the DC Eagle Cam running successfully.
On June 5th, around 2:30pm EST, “Freedom,” one of the two young eagles residing in the nest of “Mr. President” and “The First Lady” in the U.S. National Arboretum, fledged the nest!
Since hatching, the adorable bald eaglets that reside inside a nest at the U.S. National Arboretum have been referred to as “DC2” and “DC3,” as these are the second and third eaglets raised by parents “Mr. President” and “The First Lady” at this nest location. Now, however, the D.C. Eagle Cam partners and cooperators (American Eagle Foundation, U.S. Department of Agriculture, D.C. Department of Energy & Environment, and U.S. Fish & Wildlife Service) are looking for two creative and symbolic names for these eaglets that live up to the names of their parents
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.
