Second Washington eaglet hatched

The second bald eaglet has hatched in the nest at the U.S. National Arboretum in Washington, D.C.

The proud parents, named the President and the First Lady, have been seen on the webcams taking care of the babies, keeping them warm and feeding them day-old fish.

Right now, you can tell the eaglets apart. The one that hatched Friday is sturdier on its feet than it's younger sibling, who is still pretty wobbly right now.

All eyes have been on the eagles since February 10th, when the "First Lady" laid the first of the two eggs.

The eagles started nesting in this tulip poplar tree in 2014.

Last year, the pair fledged one eaglet.
