Alcoa's EagleCam has been named one of the top 25 most interesting webcams of 2012 by EarthCam.com

The camera, set up at Alcoa's Davenport Works facility, where it catches the action in the nest of bald eagles Liberty and Justice. In 2012, more than 12 million viewers from 80 different countries watched the live stream.

The EagleCam went online in 2011 when viewers watched Liberty and Justice raise an eaglet. In 2012, the pair fledged three more eaglets. Liberty and Justice are expected to raise new eaglets this year, with eggs expected to hatch by late March.
