Two eaglets recently hatched at the U.S. National Arboretum in Washington, D.C. Known for now as DC2 and DC3, the bald eagle chicks have been enjoying their first meals of fish, which the parents have been taking turns collecting. The nesting pair, named “Mr. President” and the “First Lady,” had their first eaglet a year ago in a nest at the top of a tulip poplar, which prompted the installation of two video cameras. Volunteers organized by the American Eagle Foundation take turns operating the cameras as people from around the world watch live. See the adorable highlights from DC2 and DC3’s first days.
