Gender: The male eagle is smaller and has a sleek white head. The female eagle is larger with a head of ruffled white feathers. We will not be able to determine the sex of the eaglet until it is an adult.

Injury: The female eagle returned to the nest last fall with an injured left leg/foot. We do not know how it happened, but she seems to fare quite well.

Night light: Berry is pleased to provide live video feeds of the bald eagle nesting area. The nest camera uses an infrared light at night that is not visible to the eagles. It may look like you are seeing a light, but you are not. The tree looks completely dark at night.

Names: Berry has chosen not to name the eagles because they are wild creatures and we do not want to personalize them. This year’s eaglet is B3 (Berry and the third eaglet we know of.) Last year’s chicks were B1 and B2.


Egg stats: The first egg was laid Jan. 14, the second was laid Jan. 17. The incubation period is 33-37 days. One egg hatched on Feb. 22 producing our eaglet, B3. But the other egg is not viable and has buried in the nest.

Location: The nest is located 100 feet up in a large pine tree next to a large parking lot at the college’s Steven J. Cage Athletic and Recreation Center, home to sporting events, concerts and other activities. Apparently our eagles like to be part of the action! (Source)
