We have a new eaglecam to watch in Georgia! Looks like there are probably eggs, maybe chicks already

Berry College Eaglecam

The cam is located at Berry college in Northwest Georgia.  It appears that it has only been online a short time from what I read.   The angle of view does not let us see into the nest, but from the activity I saw in the short time before dark that I watched this afternoon, I feel fairly confident that there are eggs, maybe even chicks.

Here’s what I saw, so you can come to your own conclusions.  The white spot that you see in the screen shot above is a parent.  I couldn’t tell at first, but eventually it moved enough to make it obvious.  It appears that this parent is incubating in that it stayed in the same position for at least a half hour, down low in the nest.  As it started to get dark, it looked around and then left the nest.  About a minute later a parent (same or other, no way to know) returned and settled back down.  So switchover?  About 15 minutes later another eagle arrived and so both were clearly together at the nest.  The arriving parent may have brought food, it was getting too dark to tell for sure.   And I also could not tell if one eagle was eating or perhaps feeding chicks.  I’m guessing that if there were already chicks, their Facebook page would say so, as someone would have at least heard them, as apparently the nest is basically in the parking lot of the college.     That’s about all I could discern in the hour or so I was able to watch today.    More, as we figure out or learn more from the college FB page!     The cam can be found at http://www.berry.edu/eaglecam   Facebook page http://www.facebook.com/berrycollege.  There are some great pics on the Facebook page.
