D.C. EA­GLES ARE WORLD FA­MOUS

The Washington Times Daily - - POLITICS -

It is re­as­sur­ing to know that the world is in­tensely in­ter­ested in a pair of Amer­i­can bald ea­gles who are go­ing about their ea­gle busi­ness at the top of a tulip po­plar tree in the U.S. Na­tional Ar­bore­tum — next door to The Washington Times of­fices, which over­look the fed­eral prop­erty.

Via two high-def­i­ni­tion nest­cams, view­ers in 100 na­tions have peeked at Mr. Pres­i­dent and First Lady, now rais­ing their sec­ond set of chicks.

Over 70 mil­lion have viewed the feath­ered fam­ily — “hun­dreds of thou­sands of peo­ple were glued to their com­put­ers and mo­bile de­vices” when the fuzzy gray ea­glets hatched five days ago, says the Amer­i­can Ea­gle Foun­da­tion, a Ten­nessee-based non­profit that op­er­ates the cam­eras in the na­tion’s cap­i­tal and near ea­gle nests in three other states.

“We hope that some­thing as in­spir­ing and en­dear­ing as this spe­cial ea­gle fam­ily will help Amer­ica to mo­men­tar­ily put their po­lit­i­cal dif­fer­ences and dis­agree­ments aside to share and en­joy to­gether the im­por­tance, won­der, and mean­ing of their sym­bolic Na­tional Bird,” notes Al Ce­cere, pres­i­dent of the foun­da­tion.
