WASHINGTON, D.C. (WWBT) - One baby Bald Eagle hatched from an egg at the U.S. National Arboretum in Washington, D.C. and another eaglet is expected to hatch soon.

The egg is one of two in a Tulip Poplar tree laid by the eagles, named Mr. President and The First Lady. The couple is the first Bald Eagle pair to nest in this location since 1947, according to the US Department of Agriculture.

Two cameras are showing the nest live 24 hours a day. The second eaglet is expected to hatch over the weekend.
