ROME, GA (WSFA) - Last year we told you about a rare opportunity to catch a glimpse into the life of bald eagles in Georgia. Good news! The eagles have returned and with them, two new eaglets.According to the Berry website, they added a third camera (Nest Cam 2) to the nest tree and the eagles returned right on schedule. The eagles refurbished the nest and laid the first egg of January 6. A second egg was laid in the nest on January 9 and on February 13 the first laid egg (B4) began to hatch.
The Berry College Eagle Cam, which was first started in 2012, has been a hit since Berry decided to stream the birds in the nest for all the world to see. At any given time during last year's viewing of the eagles, 7,000 to 12,000 computers had the website up at one time. Millions of viewers continued to follow as the eaglets grew up and left the nest.
Also take a look at the photos attached. They are pictures of a bald eagle living near The Waters in east Montgomery County.
They were taken recently by Teri Phillips from her front porch overlooking Lake Cameron, Montgomery County's largest lake and hunting ground the this eagle.
Bald eagles have been seen fishing in Lake Cameron for at least 10 years now.
