ROME, Ga. — A pair of bald eagles nesting on the campus of Berry College in Rome has gained a worldwide audience.
Last month the school installed a web-based “Eaglecam” that’s focused on the nest, which is located in a pine tree near the main entrance to the college.
School officials now say the birds are believed to be incubating eggs. And the Rome News-Tribune reports that people from as far away as Japan have clicked on a website to view the camera’s image of the eagle.
Berry College official Eddie Elsberry says a team of observers first noticed changes in activity at the nest around Dec. 20.
If an egg or eggs were laid during that time frame, the 35-day incubation period just passed.
The college’s Eaglecam is located at www.berry.edu/eaglecam.
