DC Eagle Cam is *killing* it tonight.

The DC Eagle Cam is a resource provided by US Department of Agriculture and it is awesome. These two mated bald eagles are nested in a tulip poplar tree in the US National Arboretum (which is why it falls under the USDA). It’s been more than 60 years since bald eagles have nested in this area.

fter “Mr. President” and “The First Lady” raised 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 mobile solar array that was designed and built by Alfred State College, SUNY College of Technology and was partially funded by the Department of Energy and Environment.
