Could there be a more perfect place for this bald eagle cam than in the Capitol of the US--Washington, D.C.? We would like to welcome you to our second year of coverage of the AEF's eagle cam which is located in the Arboretum in the nation's capitol.

In 2014, this pair Bald Eagles chose a tulip poplar tree for their nest - hopefully we will see some of the flowers - in the Azalea section overlooking the Anacostia River high above Mount Hamilton at the U.S. National Arboretum. The beautiful National Arboretum is operated by the United States Department of Agriculture. This is the first Bald Eagle pair to nest in this there since 1947. This "patriotic" cam may be watched 24/7.

The pair of eagles in this nest have been named "Mr. President" and "The First Lady"

About the nest ---

There isn't much history on this nest as it was a new one in 2014. This pair fledged one eaglet in 2015 after which the American Eagle Foundation went together with the National Arboretum to install 2 HD cams near the top of the nest tree. The cams are totally powered by a solar array. This solar array was built by Alfred State College, SUNY College of Technology and was partially funded by the Department of Energy and Environment.

In 2016 2 eggs were laid and the resulting eaglets Freedom (D2) and Liberty (D3) successfully fledged on May 26th and 29th.

A quote from Al Cecere: “Live-streaming cameras that feature our nation’s symbol in our nation’s capital … you can’t get much more American than that,” American Eagle Foundation Founder and President Al Cerere said in a news release. “It’s a great addition to our Nest Cam Program and we hope it brings joy to a lot of people.”
