Eagles `Liberty’ and `Justice’ welcome egg to Riverdale nest

Company spokesman says Liberty laid the egg late Friday afternoon

A couple of the world’s most-watched eagles have welcomed an egg to their nest.

The Quad-City Times reports that the egg was spotted by the Alcoa EagleCam 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 four years, people have been able to watch online streaming video of the eagles.

Company spokesman John Riches says Liberty laid the egg late Friday afternoon.

Riches says the eagle typically lays two eggs, so viewers should be on the lookout for another one in the coming days.
