Two brand-new bald eagle hatchlings got here into the world in California’s San Bernardino National Forest beneath the watchful eye of their attentive dad and mom — and a digicam.
Eagle One arrived Sunday morning at 9:57 a.m. native time, and the little fowl’s sibling struggled out of its egg shortly after midday on Monday.
The nest is situated close to Big Bear Lake on land managed by the U.S. Forest Service. A big space across the nest has been closed to the general public. The nonprofit Friends of Big Bear Valley installed the livestream “nest cam” with the assist of the park.
The dad and mom have been taking turns preserving the little ones heat and feeding them from an American coot carcass within the nest. On Monday evening, the dad or mum taking a flip preserving the eaglets heat was coated in snow.
Friends of Big Bear Valley is posting up to date photographs and answering questions on its Facebook page, referring to the grownup eagles as “Jackie” and “Mr. B.”
The chicks will stick with their dad and mom for as much as three months. Before this weekend, the nest had produced 4 chicks that survived — with completely different dad and mom — since 2012.
