Second eaglet begins to hatch at National Arboretum

- A second baby eagle could hatch in the U.S. National Arboretum any day!

Just one day after the hatching of baby eagle #1, the President and First Lady's second egg has begun to crack. 

It took about 48 hours for the first eaglet, whose gender has not yet been determined, to make its way out of its shell. So far, there are only a few small cracks on the second egg.

The second egg was laid about four days after the first in a nest high up in a Tulip Poplar tree amongst the Azalea Collection at the U.S. National Arboretum. 

The President and First Lady have been using this nest since 2014.
