Alcoa eagles welcome 2nd egg to Riverdale nest
RIVERDALE, Iowa (AP) – Two of the world’s most-watched eagles have welcomed a second egg to their nest.
The Quad-City Times reports (
http://bit.ly/Ndu1KJ) viewers of the Alcoa EagleCam on Thursday spotted another egg in the nest of the eagles, dubbed Liberty and Justice.
The nest is on the property of the Alcoa Davenport Works in Riverdale. For the past three years, people have been able to watch online streaming video of the eagles.
Company spokesman John Riches says Friday that Liberty laid the second egg about 5:30 p.m. Thursday.
Riches says the last egg usually comes within a week of the first egg, so that would mean any additional arrivals would come by Sunday.
The birds can be seen at alcoa.com/eaglecam.
