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.

In fall 2020, a new female appeared with what looks like the male that has used the site for years. Both also returned this fall. 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 -- officially called B15 -- took its first flight. Stay tuned!

Looking Back

Last winter: Two eggs were laid, one on New Year's Day, the other on January 4. One hatched February 10. Unfortunately, the new mom, inexperienced at raising young, did not feed the eaglet regularly and left it uncovered during wet, cold weather. The eaglet died about two days after hatching. The second egg did not hatch: It was apparently nonviable, meaning either it was not fertilized or the embryo did not develop.

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 non-viable.

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.
