A pair of bald eagles have been nesting at Berry College since 2012. You can very easily visit and see them because, despite being a species that normally is disturbed by human disturbance these birds picked a particularly conspicuous spot - a tall pine near a busy gym building and parking lot. As you can imagine, easy access to the spot and the relatively rare occurrence of nesting eagles in the state of Georgia have made these a popular spectacle for wildlife lovers and birdwatchers alike. Between nesting cycles, Georgia DNR and Berry College and the local power company have installed eagle cams so that people can watch this pair remotely and without disturbing them. Here's a link to the eagle cam: http://www.berry.edu/eaglecam/ (Warning! It can be addictive!)
Look for Bald Eagles near lakes, reservoirs, rivers, marshes, and coasts. For a chance to see large Bald Eagle congregations, check out wildlife refuges or large bodies of water in winter over much of the continent, or fish processing plants and dumpsters year-round in coastal Alaska and the Pacific Northwest.
