Georgia college changes stadium plans to accommodate eagles (with video)

A pair of bald eagles picked the right college campus to call home. Berry College, a private school in northwest Georgia, has shifted the site for its first football stadium a couple hundred yards to accommodate the mating pair of eagles nesting in a towering pine tree in the middle of the original location of the $6.9 million project, the Atlanta Journal-Constitution reported. The change will cost the 27,000-acre college an additional $500,000. The stadium is expected to be ready for the 2015 season.
