Spring is Coming!

With spring comes new life, and a wonderful way to view this is on Alcoa's eagle web cam located on the Mississippi River near Davenport, Iowa.

An eaglet just hatched yesterday in the seven-foot nest belonging to a pair of eagles residing here since 2009. My first graders are always very excited to check in on the latest happenings each day. It's so much fun to watch the babies grow, to watch the parents bring food to the nest, and to learn about these amazing creatures, our national birds!

 The site also has other educational resources available for teachers and parents. Everyone should take some time to sit back and just enjoy the incredible sites and sounds of nature at its best! Happy spring!
