The female Berry College eagle laid its first egg of 2015 about 5 p.m. today, according to college spokeswoman Chris Kozelle.

The bald eagle pair nests in a tree on campus near The Cage Center and their antics are visible 24 hours a day on two nestcams and an approach camera set up by the school.

Last year the first egg was discovered Jan. 14. Normally eagles raise between one and three young, and eggs are generally laid three to five days apart. A second egg was laid last January but only one of the two hatched. The eaglet chick was born Feb. 22, 2014.
