MARLBORO -- After DNA testing, a bald eagle currently being housed at the Southern Vermont Natural History Museum was identified as a female on Wednesday.

Before the eagle officially arrived at Hogback Mountain, there was a lot of preparation for its arrival.

"Last year, there was a program at the Marlboro Elementary School and one of the kids asked if we had a bald eagle. Kind of jokingly, I said, ‘No, we don't have any place for it to live.' And that motivated the kids to do a fundraiser," said Museum Assistant Director Michael Clough. "At the time, it was the first and second graders. They raised close to $500, which was nowhere near enough but it was enough to motivate us to get serious about it."

The funding went toward building a habitat, where a bald eagle could live in comfortable conditions.
