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.
On April 27th, Challenger the Bald Eagle and the American Eagle Foundation team traveled to Washington D.C. to participate in an educational presentation given by Joe Santiago. While in DC, the American Eagle Foundation took the opportunity to campaign for American Eagle Day! We visited the new Secretary of the Interior Ryan Zinke, our own Tennessee Senator Lamar Alexander, and other various USDA offices.
The millions of viewers who have become addicted to watching bald eagles “Mr. President” and “The First Lady” on the DC Eagle Cam (dceaglecam.org) may want to keep their eyes glued to their computer screens beginning this weekend to hopefully see two fuzzy eaglets emerge from their eggs.
There’s a new eagle pair in town…
Famous Bald Eagle pair, Mr. President & The First Lady, have welcomed their first egg of 2017 into their Washington DC nest.
