In 2009 a pair of eagles made their nest on property owned by Alcoa's Davenport Works, located along the Mississippi River in Riverdale, Iowa. A webcam was installed in 2010. And since that time, people have been watching the eagles and their offspring. Two new eaglets are expected to be born in the spring. Alcoa is asking for help naming them. To suggest a name go to the Alcoa Facebook page.
