Alcoa has begun streaming live video from a bald eagle nest on its property in Riverdale.

The pair of eagles using the nest are tending to two eggs expected to hatch sometime after Thursday. The webpage, www.alcoa.com/eaglecam, includes the live streaming video, earlier still photos and video of the eagles working on their nest.

"Alcoa is proud of our environmental commitment here in the Quad-Cities and we are pleased to be able to share the video from this eagle nest with the community," Malcolm Murphy, vice president and general manager, said in a news release.

The eagles, named Liberty and Justice in a vote at this year's Bald Eagle Days in the Quad-Cities, hatched and tended two eaglets using the same nest in 2010. Alcoa, in consultation with the U.S. Fish & Wildlife Service, installed a camera in the tree above the nest in November.
