Donald is the first golden eagle ambassador at the National Eagle Center. We are proud to have both eagle species that are native to North America represented here. We are unsure of Donald’s exact age. His fully adult plumage suggests he hatched sometime before 2002.
Donald arrived at the National Eagle Center on January 8, 2008 and was named for the Donald Weesner Charitable Trust, whose generous donation made his arrival and training possible. (courtesy National Eagle Centre)
