    A 24-hour "eagle cam" in Washington, D.C. shows live footage of the first bald eagles to nest in the National Arboretum since 1947.

    The eagles — known as "Mr. President" and "The First Lady" — built their nest in a tulip poplar tree in 2014 and raised one eaglet there last year, according to the American Eagle Foundation.

    Viewers can watch live video of the pair, thanks to a partnership between the National Arboretum and the American Eagle Foundation. The "eagle cam" went live on President's Day.

    The parents are busy nesting their newly laid eggs. The first egg arrived Feb. 10, and a second egg followed on Valentine's Day, according to the American Eagle Foundation. Both are expected to hatch in mid-March.

    The eagles are the first pair to nest in the area in nearly 70 years.
