Berry College Eagle Cam

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 mom laid two eggs in December, the first on the 13th and the second on the 16th. The first egg hatched January 21 and eaglet B16 grew fast. (Eaglets at the nest are numbered from when the cam project began in 2013.) The other egg apparently was not viable and the adults likely buried it in the nest. B16 fledged the morning of Easter Sunday, April 9. The juvenile will stay around the nest for few more weeks. Stay tuned!

Looking Back

2021-22: The same couple as in 2020-21 returned. The female laid an egg December 5 and another December 8. One eaglet hatched January 13. The second egg did not hatch and was deemed nonviable. On March 31, the juvenile fledged .

2020-21: In the fall, a new female appeared with what appeared to be the male that had used the site for years. An egg was laid New Year's Day and another January 4. One hatched February 10. Unfortunately, the new mom did not feed the eaglet regularly and left it uncovered during wet, cold weather. It died about two days after hatching. The second egg was nonviable and did not hatch.

2019-20: The nesting pair (including the previous female) laid an egg January 11–12 and a second on January 14. The first egg cracked February 22. The second egg also was nonviable.

2018-2019: The adults laid two eggs, both in January. The eaglets hatched in mid-February. Each died within about a week.

2017-2018: The pair had two eggs in January, both of which hatched. One eaglet fell from the nest and died. The remaining eaglet fledged May 9.

The eagle cams also are equipped with infrared technology. This allows viewing at night via a light spectrum the eagles—and humans—cannot see.
