WASHINGTON (AP) - A tiny bald eagle has fully emerged from its shell in a nest high above Washington.

The first signs of hatching were spotted in the nest at the U.S. National Arboretum earlier this week. The District of Columbia Department of Energy and Environment announced in a statement Friday that the eaglet has fully emerged.

The American Eagle Foundation and arboretum launched the live streaming DC Eagle Cam after the parents -nicknamed “Mr. President” and “The First Lady” - laid two eggs last month. The second egg is expected to hatch soon.

The foundation says the eagles have been nesting at the U.S. National Arboretum since October 2014 and raised one eaglet last summer.
