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.
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.
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.
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!
Millions of race fans from around the world got a very brief glimpse of the celebrity Bald Eagle “Challenger” as he soared over Turn One at Indianapolis Motor Speedway during the singing of God Bless America (Indianapolis Children’s Choir) before the start of the Indy 500’s 100th Running race on Memorial Day Weekend.
