The eagle pair in the National Arboretum in Washington, DC, is keeping watch over an egg that was laid Sunday night.

Bald eagles are an emblem of the United States, but habitat destruction and the widespread use of the insecticide DDT almost drove the bird to extinction. As could be guessed, its mate is called Mr. President. The foundation described itself as is a nonprofit devoted to protection and preservation of the bald eagle. Last time, they didn't begin streaming until mid-February, at which point the parents were already incubating their eggs, the foundation said.

The eagles are the first pair to nest in the National Arboretum since 1947.

At first, the female eagle seems alone with the egg in the nest.

Then in a flap of powerful wings, Mr. President descends upon the nest.

Last year, the D.C. Eagle Cam attracted more than 60 million views, the foundation said.

In addition, the cams went live much earlier in the season.

However, as Weil notes, the eagle family has to navigate many hazards before the hatchlings fledge. Sibling rivalry, predators and natural disasters could all threaten the young birds. They raised two Eaglets, known as Freedom and Liberty a year ago and another Eaglet in 2015.

Another egg could be laid in the next few days. Both hatched and both fledged.

The current egg is the pair's fourth in the Arboretum nest.

The duo is a pair of bald eagles nesting at the U.S. The service credited protections provided to the birds. They were removed from the endangered list nearly 10 years ago.
