Mr President & The First Lady: The DC Eagle Cam Project…Pre-Order Today!
February 2nd, 2017
What will likely become the most talked about book among bald eagle enthusiasts in 2017, is now available for pre-order.
Mr. President and The First Lady: The DC Eagle Cam Project, co-authored by Teena Ruark Gorrow and Craig A. Koppie in cooperation with the American Eagle Foundation, documents the true story of Mr. President & The First Lady, two American Bald Eagles that became an international Internet sensation while nesting in the nation’s capital during 2016, thanks to two high-definition, live-streaming cameras placed above their Tulip Poplar nest in the U.S. National Arboretum.
With over 300 nest cam images and photographs, this hard-cover, coffee-table-worthy book will allow readers to live and learn the story of Mr. President & The First Lady through their second nesting season. Images of nest-building, egg-laying, egg-hatching, and the amazing transformation of Freedom & Liberty from hatchlings to fledglings will surely thrill bird lovers of all ages.
Since the writing for the book commenced this past fall, the eagle parents have returned to their nest and are preparing to raise more eaglets this spring! The First Lady is expected to lay eggs in mid-February. Catch the action on www.dceaglecam.org.
Mr. President and The First Lady is the third book collaboration by Gorrow and Koppie through Schiffer Publishing. The authors’ other titles include Inside a Bald Eagle’s Nest, which won the Green Earth Book Award in 2014, and the recently released Inside an Osprey’s Nest.
“It was truly an honor to work with the American Eagle Foundation to showcase our national emblem – our national bird – in the nation’s capital,” said Gorrow, a professor of teacher education at Salisbury University on Maryland’s Eastern Shore. Through their collaboration, Gorrow and Koppie, a raptor biologist with the US Fish & Wildlife Service, hope to inspire in others an appreciation for wildlife and promote environmental stewardship.
