A little information about the nest---

The pair of eagles who "reside" in this nest are beautiful Liberty, the female and handsome Justice, the male.

Liberty seems to have a lot of gray in the feathers sweeping back from her eyes and a larger brow bone. Justice has larger neres and some dark around his golden eyes. Liberty's tail feathers are more straight across than Justice's and of course Liberty is quite a bit larger than Justice.


ID photos for Liberty and Justice

The nest is built in an oak tree near the Mississippi River near the Arconic Davenport Works plant and is about 80 to 85 feet above the ground.

The original nest was built in 2009 -- The nest that they are now using was built and occupied in 2016

This pair does not migrate--they remain in the area of the nest all year.

Employees and the community helped name the eagle pair Liberty and Justice.


The old nest built in 2009 and the newer one built in 2016--both are in the same tree.
AL   old nest-new nest   10-16.jpg

This pair of bald eagles joined the Arconic Davenport community in Iowa in 2009. They built their 7-foot nest on Alcoa's 400-acre facility in a tree near the Mississippi River. In the spring of 2010 they fledged a pair of eaglets and later that year we installed our first Eaglecam. Since the camera was installed 35 million visitors from around the world have tuned in to witness an American icon, the bald eagle, developing live within this unique eco-system.

During the fall and winter Liberty and Justice use the nest to eat and to prepare the nest for the next season. 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 “fledge” in late May or early June. Arconic is proud that their unwavering commitment to environmental sustainability is helping conserve precious natural resources.

One of the parents in flight over the Mississippi

We had a sad early ending to the season for this nest--it appeared that 2 eagles were trying to take over the nest and Justice seems to have disappeared. The eggs were left uncovered for too long and too often.(they were so close to hatching---day 31 for egg #1) Now there are no eagles and the eggs are alone in the nest.

Stats for the 2020/21 nesting season --


* Egg(s) laid -- Egg #1 - February 26, 2021 - 5:59 PM ~~ Egg #2 - March 1, 2021 - 7:03 PM

*Egg(s) hatched --

* Eaglet(s) named --

* Banded --

* Branched --

* Fledged --

*Last seen --

*************************************************************************

AL   Here comes dinner   6-5-14.jpg

Since the spring of 2010, Liberty and Justice have fledged sixteen eaglets from this nest. The first two eaglets fledged in summer 2010 before we installed the camera and they were never named. The sixteen that have fledged since then are named: Freedom, Spirit, Faith, Hope, Honor, Glory, Rudy, Star, Sky, Mercury, Gemini, Apollo, Windy and Storm, Analiese and Terry . What is in store for 2021?
