Eagle watch 2022: The first of two eggs in the Berry eagles’ nest has hatched; meet B-15. And B-16 might be close behind.


How to watch it all live:

PREVIOUSLY
Egg no. 2 arrived in the Berry eagles’ nest arrives. 
Below please see a list showing how many eggs were laid each year and the outcomes. It looks like five-plus weeks between eggs laid and actual hatchlings. So maybe we’ll see some activity by the second week of January.

The first egg is in the eagles’ nest behind Berry College’s Krannert Center almost a month earlier than last season. The egg was spotted Sunday afternoon and shared quickly on the eagle Facebook page.
Last season, the first egg arrived on Jan. 1 and the second egg on Jan. 4. The first egg did see an eaglet hatch but it died from exposure to the elements. The second egg never matured and was buried in the nest. 2021 nest report.
