Taking flight

Bald Eagles Nesting at BerryOne of the many perks of living or working at Berry is the possibility that on any given day you might see two of our newest residents – a pair of nesting bald eagles – take flight from their home high above the campus. Now, thanks to a web cam streaming live video of the nest, viewers from all over the world are joining in the fun. In just a few short weeks, the site (which also includes information about the eagles) has welcomed more than 33,000 unique visitors, some from as far away as Japan and Europe.

As first reported last March, the eagles have built a substantial nest in the top of a pine tree near the main entrance. After leaving for several months, they reappeared last fall and in November were seen mating. With an incubation period of 33 to 35 days for any eggs that might have been produced, our hope is that we will soon see offspring. View Eagle Cam.

UPDATE (Jan. 30): The eggs have hatched! Check out this story from Fox 5 Atlanta.
