Two live webcams in Washington D.C.’s U.S. National Arboretum showing a pair of nesting eagles have caught a lot of media attention. The second of two eggs hatched sometime Sunday and now the two tiny eaglets are the internet’s latest sensation. See if you can catch a glimpse of the eaglets!

As if a pair of eagles nesting in the nation’s capitol isn’t patriotic enough for you, the parents are appropriately named “Mr. President” and “The First Lady.” The eagles delighted viewers when they fed their chicks fish early Sunday morning.
The two chicks are the second and third eaglets this pair has hatched at the Arboretum. They raised one baby last summer and the arboretum partnered with the American Eagle foundation to attach two high-definition and solar-powered webcams to the top of the Tulip Poplar the birds are nesting in so the whole world can see them raise their young.
I’ve run across eagle nests before out in the woods, but they build these things so high up in trees, it’s impossible to see if they’ve got any young or not. These cams definitely offer a unique opportunity to watch the parenting skills of these awesome birds up close!
