New eagle spotted on campus

A sub-adult bald eagle which is about three years old has been living in the nest near the parking lot behind The Cage Athletic Center for the past few days.

Last year, two adult eagles, their two offspring and four juvenile eagles lived in the nest. It is possible that the new eagle is one of these juvenile eagles, Eddie Elsberry, director of environmental compliance and sustainability, said. The two adult eagles have been absent from the nest this summer, and the young offspring flew for the first time in April and then left the nest a few weeks later.

The new eagle can be viewed on a nest camera which has been set up on a branch near the nest. This nest camera is the only nest camera for a bald eagle nest in the state of Georgia. The live stream can be viewed at
