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 season, a first egg was laid Dec. 8 and a second Dec. 11. Unfortunately, both eggs collapsed on Jan. 20 and it’s likely neither was viable.
However, the female started a second clutch Feb. 17, laying another egg. Second clutches are uncommon for bald eagles.
(Note: One camera at the nest is down for this nesting season. The stream showing is from nest cam 2.)
2022-23: The female laid two eggs in December, one on the 13th; the other, the 16th. The first egg hatched January 21 and eaglet B16 grew fast. (The eaglets are numbered from when the cam project began in 2013.) The second egg did not hatch and was nonviable. B16 fledged on Easter morning, April 9.
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.
The eagle cams also are equipped with infrared technology. This allows viewing at night via a light spectrum the eagles—and humans—cannot see.
