"Nestoration" begins for Berry College bald eagles

ROME, Ga. -- They've been viewed by millions online, and now the bald eagles at Berry College are back in the spotlight with the beginning of another nesting season.

Almost 60 "eagleholics" gathered over the weekend to watch the eagles prepare the nest, a process known as "nestoration."

Members of the group met through the Berry College Eagle Facebook page, and they traveled to Rome from across Georgia, North Carolina, Alabama, South Carolina and Florida.

The Eagle Cam at Berry College has registered 21 MILLION views since it went live in 2013. Berry College added a second camera over the summer to provide fans with another vantage point that points directly down on the nest.

On October 9, the Eagle Cam captured "Dad Berry" preparing the nest. Click here to see the video.

The eagle couple's first on-camera season in 2013 produced two eaglets who fledged.

In 2014, the eagles laid 2 eggs, but only one hatched. That eaglet, B3 (for Berry/3rd
eaglet) fledged successfully and left the nest.

The live stream began in the fall of 2012, but it was only the approach cam.

The first nest cam was added the following year.
