Two precious baby bald eagles need your help - they need names!

The little fuzzy eaglets are nesting at the U.S. National Arboretum in Washington. We have been monitoring their progress since they hatched earlier this month. The hatching process for the first eaglet began on March 16, with the second hatching March 20.

We don't yet know the gender of the two, temporarily named "DC2" and "DC3."

The American Eagle Foundation is now asking the public to come up with names that fit either a male or female.

Those interested can submit suggestions via Twitter, Instagram or Facebook using the hashtags #dceaglecam and #namethenestlings.

The two final names will be announced April 26.

The foundation and arboretum launched the live streaming DC Eagle Cam after the parents - nicknamed "Mr. President" and "The First Lady" - laid two eggs last month. Click here to watch live.
