WASHINGTON, D.C. –  Two of D.C’s bald eagles hunkered down in their nest to watch over their two eggs during Monday night’s snowstorm.

Surveillance video shows, both eagles, “Mr. President” and “First Lady,” bundled up together at the U.S. National Arboretum.

The arboretum said that First Lady was captured protecting her eggs from the snowstorm Monday night into Tuesday morning, Mr. President, however, only joined his mate for several hours.


The eaglets are expected to hatch sometime later this month.
