Eagle Cam Notice

Thurs 6/21 On some days and most nights, the nest is empty, but 4 eagles have been visiting off and on--Jackie (mom) was there a couple days ago, Mr. B (dad) visited this morning and Stormy (chick) has visited a few times. All 3 of them have been actively chasing away the 4th visitor, a 3-year-old unbanded eagle who has been visiting, rearranging the nest and hanging out a lot. Since it's unbanded, we cannot know, but from the size, it is probably male and based on it's age, it could be Jackie's younger brother--the chick hatched in this nest 3 years ago when Ricky and Lucy (Jackie's parents) occupied it--named Shadow. Check updates and photos on our facebook page "Friends of Big Bear Valley and Big Bear Eagle Nest Cam"
