Eaglets amongst the Azalea

Check out the Eagle cams

"In 2014, a pair of mated Bald Eagles chose the most idyllic of nest sites within the United States’ National Capital (Washington, DC), nestled high in a Tulip Poplar tree amongst the Azalea Collection at the U.S. National Arboretum, which is operated by the United States Department of Agriculture. This is the first Bald Eagle pair to nest in this location since 1947. The two Eagles have been iconically named “Mr. President” and “The First Lady.” 
They returned again this year.
DC2 hatched at 8:27 a.m. March 18, 2016 Eastern Daylight Time. DC3 followed 2 days later, hatching March 20 at about 3:00 a.m. EDT." © 2016 American Eagle Foundation,  EAGLES.ORG.
