The two baby bald eagles who captured America’s attention on the U.S. National Arboretum’s live camera have been patriotically named “Freedom” and “Liberty.”
The names were announced on Tuesday after a “Name the Nestlings” social media campaign, in which 36,000 people voted. The name options included Stars and Stripes, Freedom and Liberty, Anacostia and Potomac, Honor and Glory, and Cherry and Blossom, CBS News reported.
The baby eagles’ names mirror the similarly patriotic names of their parents, dubbed “Mr. President” and “The First Lady,” the first pair of bald eagles that has nested in the National Arboretum in almost 70 years.
