WASHINGTON - Second eaglet hatches!
The second eagle chick hatched this morning in Washington, D.C. Named “DC “ it’s sibling “DC 2”hatched last week on March 18th.
In 2014 a pair of mated Bald Eagles chose to nest in the idyllic location of the U.S. National Arboretum. They are the first Bald Eagle pair to nest in this location since 1947. The two eagles were named “Mr. President” and “The First Lady”.
After successfully raising one healthy eaglet in the spring and summer of 2015 , “DC 1”, they left their nest site for their annual migration. That’s when the American Eagle Foundation and the National Arboretum moved in with the help of students and staff from Alfred State College, SUNY College of Technology and the DOEE to install the live eagle cams.
