Ring In The New Year Watching Bald Eagles “Mr. President” & The “First Lady” (Live)


Earlier this year, the world fell in love with watching a pair of eagles named “Mr. President” & “The First Lady” LIVE on Eagle Cam while they raised their eagle family (eaglets “Liberty” & “Freedom”) atop a Tulip poplar tree within the U.S. National Arboretum in Washington DC.

With over 60 million views during the five-month nest-viewing season, it quickly became one of the most popular “live” animal cams on the Internet.

Eagle  cam fans will now be happy to know that they won’t have to wait much longer to catch up on the First Family of Eagles! The 2017 launch date for the DC Eagle Cam is set to take place on New Years Eve!

In addition, the non-profit American Eagle Foundation (AEF) would like to announce that eagle lovers and fanatics can start getting their “eaglet fix” right now by watching another one of the AEF’s well-known and beloved LIVE Eagle Cams (NE Florida Eagles). Romeo and Juliet. The couples eggs hatched over the weekend.

Faith Based Events

The nesting pair laid two eggs in November, the first one on Veterans Day and the second one soon afterwards on the day of the Super Moon.

NE16, the first eaglet, “pipped” (cracked a hole in its shell from the inside) on December 16th and fully emerged from its egg over 40 hours later on December 18th.

The second eaglet, NE17, pipped through its eggshell this morning, first seen on the LIVE cams around 6:44 a.m. EST.

Viewers can catch all the action and watch NE17 hatch over the next 24-48 hours by visiting HERE right now!

NOTE: The NEFL Eagle Cam is a separate entity from the DC Eagle Cam and is run solely by the American Eagle Foundation. The DC Eagle Cam is part of a cooperative effort between the AEF, the U.S. National Arboretum, and other partners, as shown below.
