(WASHINGTON) — After almost 36 hours of hatching, the National Arboretum in Washington, D.C., welcomed the first of two baby bald eagles expected to hatch this week.

The whole spectacle is being filmed on two high definition cameras and streamed online by the American Eagle Foundation.

The eaglet began the hatching process around 7:30 p.m. on March 16, according to the foundation.

The eaglets’ parents — also known as “Mr. President” and “The First Lady” — are the first to nest in the arboretum’s tulip poplar tree in almost 70 years, according to the foundation.
