WASHINGTON, DC – (United States National Arboretum Press Release)The Final Voting Is Done. The newest eaglets raised by parents “Mr. President” and “The First Lady” at the US National Arboretum are no longer called DC2 and DC3.

The final voting tally was done with help of our primary stakeholder, Friends of the National Arboretum. There were over 37,000 votes – with the overwhelming majority for “Freedom and Liberty”. The winning names were announced Tuesday morning, April 26th, at the National Arboretum.

You can still watch these eagles here at the live D.C. Eagle Cams. The eaglets will continue to grow and mature before heading out on their own, sometime in June
