Live Camera Shows a Baby Bald Eagle Is Starting to Hatch
A live camera on the nest of a pair of bald eagles at the U.S. National Arboretum shows the first signs of egg hatching have started and eagle experts said they expect the eaglet to hatch as early as today.
If you’re one of the tens of thousands of viewers who have become addicted to watching Bald Eagles “Mr. President” & “The First Lady” on the D.C. Eagle Nest Cam, you’re going to want to keep your eyes glued to your computer screen this week to hopefully see two fuzzy eaglets hatch from their eggs!
The first egg was laid on February 10th and the second was laid on Valentine’s Day (February 14th) 2016. Bald Eagle eggs typically hatch about 35 days after being laid, so the first egg could hatch as early as Tuesday or Wednesday (March 15th or 16th).
