WASHINGTON, D.C. - Move over, National Arboretum bald eagles: their neighbors at the D.C. police academy have just had the first of two eaglets hatch as well.

Two eaglets recently stole headlines when they hatched at the National Arboretum earlier this month, and now another clutch of two eggs in the city has started hatching with the first eaglet emerging just in time for the Easter weekend, according to a statement from EarthCam, which has been monitoring the nests.

"Viewers around the world have been tuning into EarthCam’s live EagleCam in Washington, DC in hopes of watching baby eagles hatch ... and [the] wait paid off! EarthCam said in a statement on the nest at the police academy, which is located near Bolling Air Force Base at the extreme southern end of the District.
