Love Nested on a College Campus

Berry College is located in Rome....Georgia, that is. The college founded in 1902 is the world's largest college campus. The romantic, Gothic architecture is the perfect setting to find love. The 27,000 acre campus delights students and visitors with woodlands, meadows and streams. Berry College is a campus splendid enough for
higher education yet cozy enough to spark up true love...even in the trees! 

Martha and Henry are a couple of love birds. Martha is named after founder Martha Berry and Henry is named for contributor Henry Ford. Mates for life expecting their first baby any day now. Momma Martha is patiently awaiting the new bundle of joy being overly protective during Winter Storm Pax. The couples' story made the Fox5 Atlanta news. Tacoma Perry, Fox 5, interviewed Berry Assistant Professor of Biology. "Wow! It's just amazing!" said Dr. Renee Carlton referring to the couple. This is the first documented love story of its kind in the modern history of Floyd County. People as far away as Japan are "google-ing" over them. View Martha and Henry's love nest here.


If you're a bird, I'm a bird...

Yes, folks, Martha and Henry are a pair of American Bald Eagles waiting on their first eaglets! Such a cool story of love for this Valentine's Week 2014. You can watch history being made via the live webcam trained on the love nest. February 18th will be the 35th day of incubation for the first egg. Hatching could take place a few days earlier or a few days later. Follow the Berry College Eagles on their facebook page for up-to-date info on hatching progress.

You just never know. Your soul mate may be watching you from afar or from a treetop...keep your eagle eyes open!

Bird watching,
The Happy Handicap
