Big Bear bald eagle lays an egg ahead of last public count

SAN BERNARDINO, Calif. — Days before the last bald eagle count event of the season, one of Big Bear’s wintering eagles laid an egg live on camera this afternoon. U.S. Forest Service biologists were on the lookout for this moment since the nesting pair has been displaying mating behavior for over a month.

“Now, for the next 35 or so days, we will see the parents share incubation duties,” said Forest Service biologist Robin Eliason. “This regulates the temperature of the egg so the embryo can develop. If all goes well, we should see a hatchling in around April 10. And if things go like last year, we may see a second egg laid later this week!”

The nesting area, which is on the north side of Big Bear Lake in the Fawnskin neighborhood, is currently closed to the public. No hiking, snow play or other activities are allowed in the closure zone. Bald eagles during nesting season are sensitive to human interference and may abandon the nest if feeling threatened. Law enforcement officers have made a presence in the area and will continue to throughout the season.

Luckily, visitors may see a bald eagle this Saturday morning, March 9, at the last winter bald eagle count of the season, an annual event now in its 40th year that takes place at five Inland Empire lakes, including Big Bear. The event allows the public to put their citizen scientist hat on and collect data that helps U.S. Forest Service biologists understand the local wintering bald eagle population.

No reservations are needed; just show up at a designated location at the start time with binoculars and a way to keep time. And don’t forget to dress for winter weather and bring chains if driving to a mountain location!

Time and location details are as follows:

· Big Bear Lake area participants will meet at 8 a.m. at the Big Bear Discovery Center on North Shore Drive (Hwy 38) for orientation. Contact Robin Eliason (reliason@fs.fed.us or 909-382-2832) for more information. Please call 909-382-2832 for cancelation due to winter weather conditions – an outgoing message will be left no later than 6:00 am on Saturday morning if it has to be canceled due to weather and road conditions. There will also be a free slideshow presentation about bald eagles at 11 a.m. after the count.

· Lake Arrowhead/Lake Gregory area participants will meet at 8 a.m. at the Skyforest Work Center on Hwy 18 for orientation. Contact Robin Eliason (reliason@fs.fed.us or 909-382-2832) for more information. Please call 909-382-2832 for cancelation due to winter weather conditions – an outgoing message will be no later than 6:00 am on Saturday morning if it has to be canceled due to weather and road conditions.

· Silverwood Lake State Recreation Area participants should plan to meet at the Silverwood Lake’s park office on Cleghorn Rd. (west of Highway 138) at 8 a.m. for orientation. Contact Mark Wright for more information about volunteering or taking an eagle tour (760-389-2303 between 8 a.m. and 4 p.m.; or email: mark.wright©parks.ca.gov).

· Lake Hemet participants should plan on meeting at the Lake Hemet Grocery Store at 8:30 a.m. for orientation. NOTE: Highway 74 from Hemet and Highway 243 from Banning are currently closed due to storm damage. Participants must use Highway 74 from Anza or Palm Desert.

· Lake Perris State Recreation Area participants should plan to meet at the Lake Perris Regional Indian Museum at 8 a.m. for orientation. For more information call Lake Perris SRA at 951-940-5600 or the Lake Perris Regional Indian Museum at 951-940-5657.

Those who can’t make the counts can still try to see bald eagles around our local lakes this winter. Contact the Big Bear Discovery Center (909-382-2790) or the Idyllwild Ranger Station (909-382-2921) for eagle watching tips and etiquette on the San Bernardino National Forest.

And for eagle viewing any time of the day, the live feed of the bald eagle nest is back! Through a partnership with the Friends of the Big Bear Valley, a new camera was installed last summer, offering a higher resolution feed, better zooming and a nearly 360-degree panning option. It can be viewed at the Institute for Wildlife Studies’ website or on YouTube.

A bit worried that the egg has been left uncovered for the last hour. Jackie left at 6:20.

Trust the process. The first egg often isn't fully incubated until the next egg (or the last egg) is laid, so that they'll hatch closer together. At this point they only need to keep it from freezing. Of course, it is nerve wracking. A predictor could always steal the egg, but I suspect that the parents are close by aware of who may be at their nest.

From Friends of Big Bear Valley and Big Bear Eagle Nest Cam
Facebook page:
"If you are worried about the egg being exposed without incubation, here is some information that might help ease your mind a bit. "According to Professor Jim Grier, birds often start incubation slowly or gradually when temperatures aren’t in the freezing range. Freshly laid eggs can spend a lot of time in the zone of suspended development (roughly 28.4 to 80.6°F or -2°C to 27°C) with no harm to the egg or embryo." Currently it's 34 degrees in the nest vicinity. Last year, there were several times very soon after the egg(s) was laid when it was left alone for what seemed like long periods. Keeping our fingers crossed that Jackie and Shadow know what they're doing."

Chattie-glad to hear the pup is doing ok. Remember when changing foods, no more than 1/8th change at a time, wait a week, then change another 1/8th and so on. It helps their systems adjust and if anything is rough or amiss (like pancreas) the impact isn't as tough on them.

Further analysis from different angle photos depicts that small fire was from a 'heavy fireplace smoke' Oh well, the height above from nearest chimney seemed much too high.. and not enough coffee ☕ had been had at 7:20am.
