The Eagle Cam

Screen Shot 2014-03-08 at 10.53.49 PMBoth cameras are equipped with infrared (IR) technology that allows viewing at night. This light spectrum is outside the viewing range of both bald eagles and humans. When on location at night, no light source can be seen by the naked eye.

In September 2013, our bald eagle couple returned to the Berry College campus and to their nest in a tall pine tree situated between the main entrance and the parking lot of the Steven J. Cage Athletic and Recreation Center.

The couple spent several months repairing and adding to the nest and catching fish and coots in the nearby Berry quarry, Oostanaula River and Garden Lakes. An egg was produced on January 14, 2014, followed by a second egg on January 17. An eaglet chick hatched on Saturday, February 22, from one of the two eggs laid in January. But the other egg is not viable and is still in the nest.

Feeds for live streaming cameras are featured on this page. This is the only live, streaming video camera of a bald eagle nest in Georgia.

Berry College’s original bald eagle parents began making the nest in March 2012, an unusual time for nest-building in the life-cycle of eagles.

Enjoy the eagle, it is awesome… but think about the political irony for just a second… the great bald eagle, symbol of America, is now under secret surveillance.
