Updated:Mt BERRY, Ga —
Berry College officials confirm that a missing mother eagle has returned.
It is unclear how long the mother eagle was gone, but Berry College posted on their Facebook page Tuesday that their mother eagle was missing. There was rising concern for her eaglet.
Through an Eaglecam at Berry College, viewers have been able to watch the eagle family since last fall. According to the Berry College website, the mother eagle laid two eggs early January, but only one egg hatched. The surviving eaglet is better known to viewers as “B3.”
According to Berry College, people were concerned about whether B3 was going to be OK.
One viewer commented, saying, “They are fascinating creatures of nature and I feel privileged to have experienced this. I pray that she returns safely soon.”
While a school statement said that the father brought B3 fish two times yesterday, one viewer said that he hasn’t seen the father since late yesterday and that the B3 was huddled up alone Monday night.
However, around 1 p.m Tuesday, Berry College reported on their Facebook page that the mother eagle has returned to the nest safely.
