UPDATE: Thursday morning via email I was told that Bald Eagle eggs hatch in five weeks.  That means one egg could hatch Friday, the second egg on Monday.  Could it actually be that accurate?  Well, the first eagle came sometime between Saturday and early Sunday morning.  When will eaglet number two hatch? see for yourself!

Nick just told me that you people like watching stuff.  In fact, unbeknownst to me, folks enjoy watching grass grow, water boil, and ants scurrying about...online.  So, in the spirit of voyerism (of nature) I present a cam set up by Berry College in Georgia.

This is from the Berry College website and it offers a little context:

In September 2013, Berry’s original bald eagle couple was once again seen on the Berry College campus in the vicinity of the 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 in Rome. An egg was produced on January 14, 2014, followed by a second egg on January 17.

During the summer, college staff relocated the "approach" video camera to a pole closer to the nest and, with the help of a Georgia Power crew, mounted a "nest cam" in a branch near the eagles’ nest. Feeds for these 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.
