Location: Berry College, Mount Berry
These cameras focus on a bald eagle nest in a tall pine tree near the Cage Center on Berry College's 27,000-acre campus in northwest Georgia. Nesting activity typically occurs from fall through April–May. This year, the eagles laid an egg sometime January 11–12 and a second egg on January 14.
Unfortunately, the first egg cracked February 22 and was disposed of by the adults (no eaglet remains were seen). The second egg also was non-viable. Berry College explained the situation in this Facebook post. The pair is not expected to nest again this season.
In 2019, the adults laid two eggs in January. One eaglet hatched February 18 and the other two days later. Unfortunately, both died within about a week.
During the 2018 season, the female also laid two eggs, both of which hatched. One eaglet fell from the nest and died. The remaining eaglet fledged on May 9.
The eagle cams include advertisements at the start via LiveStream, which hosts the streams. Berry College has control over ad content and works to ensure it is appropriate.
The cams also are equipped with infrared technology. This allows viewing at night via a light spectrum the eagles—and humans—cannot see.
