SOCIAL CIRCLE, GA (WFXG) -

Peach State residents can get an inside look at the life of bald eagles thanks to a partnership between the Georgia Department of Natural Resources and Berry College. 

The DNR Wildlife Resources Division is streaming live video provided by the northwest Georgia college of two bald eagles nesting near Berry's athletic and recreation center.

The public can follow the pair 24/7 at www.georgiawildlife.com/BerryEagleCam, as well as on Berry College's website (www.berry.edu/eaglecam). Berry staff and eagle watchers also track the birds on Facebook at www.facebook.com/berrycollegeeagles.

The nest, first documented in 2012, has been a hit since Berry began streaming it during winter 2013. Two eaglets took their first flights from the nest that spring, a fledging celebrated by fans. This year, the school added a camera that provides a high-definition view into the nest built high in a pine tree.

DNR Nongame Conservation Section Program Manager Jim Ozier, head of bald eagle monitoring in Georgia, said the agency had been looking for an opportunity to live-stream an eagle nest. Berry's cams answer that need, providing an entertaining and educational look at these iconic raptors.

"It allows people an up-close look at nest maintenance and parental behavior – activities normally seen only from afar, if at all," Ozier said.

Jeanne Mathews, assistant vice president of Public Relations and Marketing at Berry, said the school "very much appreciates the assistance of Sony, Georgia Power and Fluid Mesh Networks for helping us make this opportunity possible."

"We hope our viewers will enjoy this unique and exciting chance to watch bald eagles 24 hours a day."

Egg watch 2014 is on as viewers wait for the pair's first egg. Ozier said laying can stretch into January, though eagles do not produce eggs every year.
