Baby Bald Eagle Hatches at D.C.’s National Arboretum!

A pair of bald eagles known as “Mr. President” and “the First Lady” welcomed their first eagleton Friday morning in Washington, D.C.’s National Arboretum.

The American Eagle Foundation launched the Bald Eagle Nest Cam after the eagles laid two eggs last month, giving people a chance to watch the hatching live.

The eagle couple chose to nest high in a Tulip Poplar tree amongst the Azalea Collection at the National Arboretum.

After a small crack in one egg was spotted earlier this week, officials knew that one of the eaglets was on the way.

The crack turned into a hole Thursday, with the eaglet fully hatching just about 24 hours later.

The second egg should be hatching in the coming days. You can stay on “egg-watch” with theBald Eagle Nest Cam.
