WASHINGTON, DC (WTVD) -- Bird watchers are waiting to see the birth of bald eagle chicks in Washington, DC.


The first eaglet began the hatching process on Wednesday around 7:30 p.m. The second egg began hatching Saturday afternoon.

A pair of eagles are nesting in a tree at the U.S. National Arboretum, which is operated by the United States Department of Agriculture.

It's the first bald eagle pair to nest in this location since 1947.

The two Eagles have been named "Mr. President" and "The First Lady."
