WASHINGTON, DC. - Names were announced here Tuesday for a baby bald eagle and five other rcently born animals, all living in the Washington region and all members of species whose survival remains a matter of concern.

The names, as befits the importance given to the six animals, were chosen by a process that enlisted public participation and carried symbolic significance.

In the case of the eaglet, born in a nest in the far reaches of Southwest Washington, the name honored an admired human quality.

The eaglet, which hatched 110 feet up in an oak near the D.C. police academy in March, was given the name “Spirit.”
