Eaglet hatches at Metropolitan Police Department Academy

WASHINGTON —Another eaglet has hatched in the District— this time at the Metropolitan Police Department Academy in Southwest.

The baby bird emerged Saturday as bird watchers nationwide observed, thanks to a live stream perched at the bald eagle nest. The parents, “Liberty” and “Justice,” have nested at the location for 11 years, police say. The eggs were laid Feb. 18 and Feb. 20.

If all of this sounds familiar it’s because there was a similar hatching caught on live video: two eaglets hatched at the U.S. National Arboretum last week.
