After going missing for weeks, the missing DC bald eagle, Justice, has officially returned to his nest.
The Earth Conservation Corps announced Justice’s return Wednesday in the latest development the DC Eagles’ nest saga. The non-profit launched a search for Justice who was last seen around 7 a.m. on Feb. 9.
Since he left, his mate of 14 years, Liberty has already laid two eggs and had multiple other male suitors including Aaron Burrd, M2, M3 and M4, the ECC said. At one point, Liberty even abandoned the eggs and left with M2. Liberty returned on Monday, but Justice was still nowhere to be found at that time.
Around 2:21 p.m. on Wednesday, Justice finally made his return, the ECC said.
Now that Justice has returned, the ECC said they have yet to see both Liberty and Justice together. They believe Justice may fight off Liberty’s suitors to reclaim his nest, or lose it all to M2.
The organization said they are waiting to see what happens next.
