Decorah Eagle Lays First Egg of the Year


DECORAH, Iowa —Nature has provided at least one little reminder that spring is not too far away.

One of the Decorah eagles has laid the first egg of 2014.

Millions of people around the world tune in to the Raptor Resource Project every year to see the eggs hatch.

The latest egg was laid Sunday just before 5 p.m. The camera went live Monday at 8 a.m.

The eagle at Alcoa's Davenport works also laid its first egg of 2014, according Quad Cities station, WQAD.

One of the two eagles that lives in the Alcoa nest, Liberty, reportedly laid the egg at about 6:30 p.m. Sunday, February 23, 2014.

The spokesman said it would take a few days to determine how many eggs Liberty and Justice will have for the season.

"Eggs are typically laid at least a day or two apart," said a spokesperson from Davenport Works.
