Watch baby eagles in two different nests

March 26, 2012|By Eyewitness News

(DAVENPORT, Iowa) — The Alcoa Bald Eagle Cam in Davenport, Iowa welcomes three new eaglets to the world. Its web camera shows both mom and dad Justice and Freedom feeding and caring for their new additons.

The webcam showed the final egg hatching on Saturday and then a feeding in the morning. All three eaglets had their heads up and ready to eat some food from both Liberty and Justice.

Eagles nesting in Iowa typically lay eggs in late February or early March and the eggs hatch in late March or early April.  The eaglets grow quickly and are ready to fly in late May or early June.

The Davenport eaglets aren't the only ones with people watching.

The Devorah eagles are back. Mom has laid three more eggs this spring. The Raptor Resource Project expects the hatchings will begin any day now. Each egg can take up to two days to hatch.

Last year, millions of people logged on to watch the Decorah eaglets hatch on the Eagle Cam. It was the most popular feed on Ustream in 2011.

This year the Eagle Cam is equipped with night vision, high definition and a panning camera. Click below to watch.
