The bald eagles nesting at the National Arboretum have welcomed two new chicks into the world.
The wild pair of bald eagles nesting in Washington DC’s National Arboretum, named “Mr. President” and “The First Lady,” have been siting on a pair of eggs since February. One egg hatched on March 18 with the world watching on a live web cam. Today, live footage from the webcam shows two fuzzy little eaglets begging for food.
Now! Live webcam footage of the eagle nest reveals views of the baby eaglets adjusting to their new egg-free home. Tune in to see feedings and to watch the little fuzzballs gaze out at the world. If all you see is an adult sitting on the nest, don’t be fooled! There are two babies underneath, and they could poke their heads out any second.
Pick up the live view of the bald eagles and eaglet(s) here.
Nothing — the live stream is free and open to all.
WHY IT’S OF INTEREST
In 2014, the eagle pair “Mr. President” and “The First Lady” arrived at the US National Arboretum and found a tall Tulip Poplar in the Azalea Collection to be the perfect nest site. The couple hatched and raised one eaglet last year.
For this year’s nesting season, the American Eagle Foundation and the National Arboretum joined up to install two high-def cameras so the world could stream live footage of the nest.
“The First Lady” laid two eggs in February, and both parents have been diligently sitting on them since, waiting for their young to emerge. Now that both eaglets have hatched, the viewing will only get better as the parents bring them meals and the babies get bigger, stronger, and more active. The chance to witness these majestic birds in their natural habitat is a unique, educational, and often entertaining experience.
