We’re here for the eagle drama at the National Arboretum | DC thing

DC residents love gossip, even if it’s a few eagles. It’s a DC thing

WASHINGTON — There’s a romantic entanglement playing in the air over DC, and it’s one of those dramas we love to spy on in this city.

It’s a story we’ve heard before; a seemingly happy couple, who suddenly see their relationship tested by temptation, quickly followed by… betrayal!

The National Arboretum’s beloved bald eagle couple, Mr. President and First Lady, are no more, after they find themselves in love with a new, younger chick.

In February, other lady eagles began showing up at the nest the couple call home. The First Lady didn’t care, chasing the intruders, until one day she ran into a young woman who decided she wasn’t the one leaving.

The First Lady was last seen on February 15. Then you know it wasn’t a good Valentine’s Day.

Since then, Mr. President has been seen getting comfortable with his New First Lady, tidying the nest and sharing the food.

Now, bald eagles usually mate for life, but only if they raise babies. Apparently, if they aren’t, anything goes.

We love gossip, don’t we?
