And now there are two. The second eaglet of Alcoa’s eagles has hatched just two days after the first one was welcomed into the world.

“As of about 7:45 a.m. this morning, I saw the second one,” Alcoa Davenport Works spokesman John Riches said this morning. He could not pinpoint the time the egg hatched.

The pair is the latest offspring for the eagles, named Liberty and Justice, who nest on the aluminum plant’s property in Riverdale.

If both the eaglets thrive, they will be the seventh and eighth eaglets for the adult eagles, which have used the same nest the past four years.

Alcoa currently is accepting ideas for names for the new birds at its Facebook page. To capture a glimpse of the new eaglets, visit the company’s live-streaming EagleCam at Alcoa.com/eaglecam.
