WATCH LIVE: Bald Eagle Camera at National Arboretum in D.C.
The American Eagle Foundation is streaming live video of two Bald Eagles, "Mr. President" and "The First Lady" live from Washington, DC.
According to their website...
In 2014, a pair of mated Bald Eagles chose the most idyllic of nest sites within the United States’ National Capital (Washington, DC), nestled high in a Tulip Poplar tree amongst the Azalea Collection at the U.S. National Arboretum, which is operated by the United States Department of Agriculture. This is the first Bald Eagle pair to nest in this location since 1947. The two Eagles have been iconically named “Mr. President” and “The First Lady.”
After raising one eaglet successfully in 2015, the 501(c)3 American Eagle Foundation partnered with the National Arboretum to install and stream two high definition video cameras from the top of the nest tree. The cameras are powered completely by a large solar array designed and donated by Alfred State College, SUNY College of Technology, which was also partially funded by the District Department of Energy and Environment.
"The First Lady" laid her first egg of 2016 on February 10th, and laid her second egg on February 14th early in the morning. Both parents will carefully incubate the eggs, and both eggs are expected to hatch about 35 days after being laid.
