DC4 (Honor) made its way into the world March 29, followed by DC5 (Glory) March 30, 2017.We all watched with bated breath on April 20, 2017 when Honor become stuck in the nest, was rescued and successfully returned home the next day.And, we thank our loyal viewers, whose support and advocacy for our mission encourages and sustains our efforts.In 2014, a pair of mated Bald Eagles chose the most idyllic of nest sites within the United States’ National Capital (Washington, DC), nestled high in a Tulip Poplar tree amongst the Azalea Collection at the U. National Arboretum, which is operated by the United States Department of Agriculture.
Two little eaglets hatched in the nest this season, while tens of thousands of excited viewers watched.
The video cuts out at that point, so the dinner scene is left to viewers’ imaginations.
[Sorry, birdwatchers: People think you’re creepy] Here’s the video. Live-cam viewers, of course, saw it all play out, and the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette reported that some were “squeamish or disturbed.” The Audubon Society of Western Pennsylvania responded on its Facebook page with a post reminding people that nature “isn’t always kind or pretty.” (Case in point: After a baby bald eagle died on another webcam in Hanover, Pa., its carcass “eventually deteriorated and was slowly stomped into the structure of the nest,” the Post-Gazette reported.) The Pittsburgh cat was probably already dead when it was brought to the nest, the Audubon Society said, though it wasn’t clear whether it met its demise at the claws of an eagle.
When a zoo in upstate New York set up a live webcam last week of a pregnant giraffe about to give birth, millions of people logged on to You Tube to watch.
Even more tuned in after an online controversy briefly shut down the feed, calling even more attention to the 15-year-old giraffe named April and her calf-to-be.
