ROME, Ga. — Two bald eaglets are expected to hatch this week as the world is allowed to watch along.

An “eagle cam” is set up above the nest at Berry College near Rome, Georgia. The college’s bald eagle couple first appeared in 2012. Over the past three years they have nested in the top of a tall pine tree near the athletic center, WGN reported.

The couple already has three grown offspring. Before the eagles arrived three years ago, the college had planned to remove the tree for a new stadium. But, the area has been preserved by the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service, and the stadium was built farther away.
