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.
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.
