One of Arconic's eagles tends an egg high up in the pair's nest.

The eagles nesting in Riverdale at the Arconic plant are now taking care of their first egg this year.

A post on the Arconic EagleCam page says the egg showed up in the nest on Sunday around 2:30 pm. The parents, Liberty and Justice, coped well with the challenge of 50 mile-an-hour winds.

If there is a second egg, Arconic eagle-watchers expect to see it on Tuesday or Wednesday. And if all goes well, hatching could occur at the beginning of April.
