    Grant and Glenda are the eaglets’ parents, and the nest is located at the park’s American Eagle Foundation exhibit, WATE reported. 

    The park shared a photo of the eaglet in an Instagram post.

    "Welcome to the world, little eaglet! Hatched at Dollywood on April 17, we and @aefeagles (American Eagle Foundation) are so excited for this addition to the family!" the post read.

    The eaglet is part of Dollywood’s Eagle Mountain Sanctuary, a 30,000-square-foot aviary that "houses the country's largest presentation of non-releasable bald eagles," according to the theme park’s website.

    People interested in the progress of the eaglet and its parents can watch them on Dollywood’s live eagle cams.
