WASHINGTON (WUSA9) - Honor was restored to the air Thursday morning.
The female eaglet, Honor, hatched in the National Arboretum nest built by her bald eagle parents Mr. President and the First Lady on March 29. Now, she's out exploring on her own.
She took flight at 9:09 a.m. June 22 and returned about 30 minutes later.
This was not Honor’s first adventure since her hatching. On April 20, she was rescued from the nest after her leg was trapped between two branches. Luckily, this inaugural flight was smooth sailing.
She took flight after her sibling, Glory, left the nest.
Now both siblings have left the nest and taken to the open skies. The American Eagle Foundation said the live-streaming cameras will be on the lookout for any returns to the nest.
