SOCIAL CIRCLE, GA (WTOC) - The Georgia Dept. of Natural Resources and Berry College, the DNR Wildlife Resources Division have partnered with Berry College, which is providing streaming video of two bald eagles that are nesting near Berry's athletic and recreation center.
The nest was first documented in 2012. Berry College launched the video livestream in winter 2013. Two eaglets took their first flights from the nest that spring.
Last year, the Nongame Conservation Section documented 171 occupied nesting territories in Georgia. Of these, 129 were successful, fledging 193 eaglets. In 2000, there were 55 known nesting territories, nine in 1990 and one in 1980.
