Storm-Damaged Davenport Eaglecam to Return Soon
DAVENPORT, Iowa (AP) — The eaglecam at the Alcoa plant near Davenport will be up and running soon.
The web camera, which streams live video from an eagle nest, was damaged in a storm in June. The Quad-City Times says plant officials hope to have the camera ready by the end of the month.
Alcoa spokesman John Riches says crews installed a new camera in August, but it stopped working. Crews then discovered the cables were damaged too.
Riches says repairs should be finished in the next few weeks He anticipates the pair of American bald eagles — named Liberty and Justice — will set up house in late October.
Last year, millions of viewers watched three eggs hatch and the eaglets grow.
