WASHINGTON (WUSA9) — "Mr. President" and "The First Lady," a pair of Bald Eagles that have been famous across Washington, D.C. for two years, have laid their second egg of 2018 just a few days before Easter.
It was laid on Wednesday, March 28 in the early afternoon.
But these parents are not just known to those within the Washington area. Millions of people from around the world have been invested in the development and cultivation of this eagle family.
The pair of eagles, who have set up their nest at the National Arboretum in Northeast, D.C., have been watched and loved by the public since the spring of 2016, when an eagle camera was first set up.
This season's the two eggs have been dubbed DC6 and DC7, in the order in which they were laid, and representing the sixth and seventh eggs that the pair has laid.
“It’s always endearing and exciting to watch the behaviors of an eagle pair,” said American Eagle Foundation President Al Cecere. “Sometimes they almost appear to banter about who gets to watch over the eggs or chicks next. Of course, we have no clue what they’re saying to each other, but we can certainly have fun imagining."
