This year's Arconic eaglets will be named after two Quad Cities first responders. When voting ended last night, Analiese and Terry had the most votes at 37 percent. 

They're named in honor of Riverdale Firefighter Analiese Chapman who died a few months ago, and Hampton Police Chief Terry Engle who died in a car crash while responding to a call. 

Genesis and Trinity came in second at 29 percent.

Darker feathers are starting to show on the one-month old eaglets.

They usually fledge or start learning to fly in late May or June.

Parents Liberty and Justice first built their nest on the Arconic (then Alcoa) plant property in 2009.

Employees installed a webcam the following year. Analiese and Terry are the 15th and 16th eaglets hatched.
