Berry College 2021-2022 Nest Thread

Welcome everyone to year 9 of Berry College Eagles :hi: .

From Berry Eagles
IS THIS THE SAME FEMALE EAGLE?: No; the original female eagle got into an altercation with the new female eagle at the end of November 2020, and left the area. That new female is now the resident female. The original female was most recently spotted by a photographer in mid-December 2020 at Lake Guntersville in Alabama.
IS THIS THE SAME MALE EAGLE?: According to our eagle experts, who have reviewed photos and video to look at his appearance and behavior, the male eagle is the same.

WILL THE EAGLET COUNT START OVER, SINCE THIS IS A NEW FEMALE?: No; eaglets are traditionally numbered by nest, not by parent.

NAMES: Berry has chosen not to name the eagles because they are wild creatures and we do not want to personalize them.

A huge thank you to HWF for featuring this cam on your website :ty:

Berry College’s bald eagle couple first appeared on the main campus in the spring of 2012. Since that time, they have continued to nest in the top of a tall pine tree situated between the main entrance and the parking lot of the Steven J. Cage Athletic and Recreation Center.
It is believed that the bald eagles remain in the area during the summer months and do not migrate as there is plentiful food available from lakes, the Berry quarry and the nearby Oostanaula River. They have occasionally been sighted at or near the nest during the summer, probably to ensure that other animals know it is occupied.


Thank you Mary F for bringing this nest to our attention and to HWF for featuring these cams on their website :)

We use Chatroll instead of Livestream to promote conversation around the eagles. Anyone can see chat - You will, however, need to create a free Chatroll account or use Facebook or Twitter to contribute to the conversation. We know that change can be tough, but this tool should enhance the user experience for all and provide us with better monitoring and filtering options.

GENDER:
The male eagle is smaller and has a sleek white head. The female eagle is larger with a head of ruffled white feathers.

DIET: The eagles enjoy eating fish, coot (waterfowl) and squirrel. The nest is conveniently located near the Oostanaula River, the renamed Eagle Lake at Berry and Garden Lakes in Rome, Ga.

HELP: If an eaglet falls out of the nest or any of the eagles become injured, college officials are required to contact authorities regarding the federal rules for handling bald eagles. No personnel are permitted in the restricted area during nesting season. Any intervention or care for eagles will be determined by federal authorities.

EGG STATS:

In 2013, two eggs hatched (B1 and B2.) B1 fledged on April 22 and B2 fledged on April 28.
In 2014, two eggs were laid, but only one (B3) hatched on Feb. 22. B3 fledged on May 22, 2014.
In 2015, eggs were laid on Jan. 6 and 9 with hatching on Feb. 13 and 15. B4 fledged on May 10, 2014, and B5 fledged on May 12, 2015.
In 2016, eggs were laid Jan. 7 and 10 and hatched Feb. 14 and 15. B6 and B7 fledged May 8 and 9, 2016.
In 2017, eggs were laid Jan. 3 and 7 and hatched Feb. 11 and 13. B8 and B9 fledged on May 5, 2017 and May 10, 2017.
In 2018, eggs were laid Jan. 3 and 6 and hatched Feb. 12 and 13. On Feb. 22, 2018, one of the two eaglets wandered over to the edge of the nest and fell out of the 100-foot-tall pine tree. It did not survive the fall. The remaining eaglet fledged on May 9.
In 2019, eggs were laid Jan. 8 and 11 and hatched Feb. 19 and 21. The eaglets died shortly thereafter. No cause was determined.
In 2020, eggs were laid Jan. 11 and 13. Neither egg hatched.
In 2021, eggs were laid Jan. 1 and 4. B14 hatched on Feb. 10, but died from exposure on Feb. 11. Egg #2 did not hatch.

STADIUM: Before the eagles, Berry officials had planned to build a stadium in the area. Once the eagles arrived, the stadium site was moved to the south. In May 2014, Berry officials announced that the stadium would be relocated even further south out of respect for the eagles and their habitat.

The nest is empty this morning. I sure hope Dad brings his weekwacker next time to cut the grasses but I'm sure he will have this nest in tip top shape in no time.
