Eagle enthusiasts

Daphine RooksWith another season of eagle watching almost upon us, 60 members of the “B3 Buddies” (named for the most recent eagle fledgling) flocked to campus in October for an in-person look at the famous nest. Among the visitors was 94-year-old Daphine Lummus Rooks (38H, 42C). She recalled pinning violets on Henry Ford’s wife, Clara, during a visit to Berry by the famous couple and described living on campus while husband Herman (43C) was teaching here. Her son, Leland, is named for former Berry president Leland Green. 11 Alive coverage.

Eagle watchers will be happy to hear that a new camera with sound capabilities has been installed for the upcoming nesting season. The sound will be enabled once the eagles return to the nest full time (any day now). Click here to access all three views.
