The proud parents' first egg hatched on Tuesday morning, and the second hatchling made its appearance into the world on Friday morning.

According to the National Eagle Center, bald eagles typically lay one to three eggs per year and they begin to hatch after about 35 days of incubation. Once the incubation period is over, it can take up to two days for the hatchling to emerge.

The next stage in the nesting process will be rearing and preparing the baby eaglets to fledge, which is at about 10 to 12 weeks of age.

You can watch Rosa, Martin and their offspring on the Dulles Greenway live-stream eagle cameras.
