Bald Eagle Eggs about Ready to Hatch
Posted: February 06, 2020

At 5:34 a.m. on Jan. 8, Jackie the Bald Eagle laid her first egg in a nest built approximately 120 feet up in a Jeffery pine, overlooking Big Bear Lake. Another egg followed shortly thereafter on Jan. 11. Since that time, Jackie and her mate - a bald eagle called Shadow - have taken turns sitting on their eggs to keep them warm. One eagle sits on the egg while the other eagle goes off to fish. The incubation period for a bald eagle egg is approximately 35 days, which means that mountain residents tuned in to the Friends of Big Bear Valley live streaming Eagle Cam hosted on YouTube are hopefully due for a treat on Valentine’s Day when the fluffy white baby chicks are expected to hatch.
