Nothing Screams 'America!' Like Watching Eaglets Hatch
March 20, 2012


If you're looking to feel patriotic, you can hop on over to the Alcoa website and watch baby bald eagles hatch before your eyes. But you better hurry, as one eaglet has already emerged from an egg, and the other two babies are expected to hatch in the next day or so.


The "EagleCam" at Alcoa's Davenport, Iowa, facility was set up in 2010 after two eagles, appropriately named Liberty and Justice, built a 7-foot nest there. Last year, nearly 1.5 million people visited the site to watch a baby eagle hatch. You can also follow along on Twitter, with the #alcoaeaglecam hashtag.
