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.
The adult pair nesting this year includes a new female and what appears to be the male that has used the site for years. (It’s not known what happened to the previous resident female.) The new mom laid an egg on New Year's Day and another on Monday night, January 4.
Last year, the nesting pair laid an egg sometime January 11–12 and a second egg on January 14. The first egg cracked February 22 and the adults disposed of it. The second egg also was non-viable. Berry College explained the situation in on Facebook.
In 2019, the adults laid two eggs in January. The eaglets hatched in mid-February. Each died within about a week.
2018 also featured two eggs, both of which hatched. One eaglet fell from the nest and died. The remaining eaglet fledged 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.
