This is posted on Friends of Big Bear...the wonderful people with the live show"Simba"....
Please read and spread the word......


Friends of Big Bear Valley and Big Bear Eagle Nest Cam
6 hrs ·
Look at the size of Simba's beautiful wing next to Shadow!
We'll pretend that Simba was stretching that out alongside dad to show us how proud he is of his big wings...
shhh...so, don't look at the photos showing this was actually when he made a bit of a crash landing into the limb behind dad as he tried to pull down from zipping in too fast to get that fish laying in the nest...
...and we'll whistle and look the other way when he later flies in too high and fast for mom's fish delivery and has to pass by the nest tree to keep from hitting the limb again...
We'll focus on the perfect landing he did on the next pass and all think 'congratulations to Simba, the great flyer!'
**Unfortunately, as Simba learns to hone his flying skills we have discovered that some local photographers seem to think that getting their photos is more important than giving Simba the best chance possible to learn his skills and survive on his own. The National Forest area around the nest has been and remains closed to the public specifically to give Simba that best chance of having a good, healthy and long future. Based on his a bit raggaly flying skills, how quickly Simba gets to the nest for food and that we are often hearing his squees nearby, including this morning, it is highly unlikely that Simba has left the closed area since he fledged last week. Which means that ANY PHOTOS of Simba outside of the nest, on trees other than the nest tree, were taken by someone violating that closure and putting Simba at risk as well as his parents who are trying to protect him. We are very sad to see people putting their own needs ahead of those of our beloved bald eagle family. Please do not support this entitled behavior either by being thrilled with the photos online or by buying them. That will only encourage this type of wreckless behavior against the eagles. You can have all the photos you want from the live stream and the photos we post here and the photos and videos others post here and on other sites. I post so many photos so everyone can see and download the ones they want--all with no impact to the eagles. That is why we put up the nest cam--to be able to watch and share the lives of these beautiful birds with the world without endangering them. And I ask that you to PLEASE PLEASE SPREAD the WORD about this to all your friends so that everyone understands that we all must follow the rules to keep Simba safe and happy.
A HUGE THANK YOU goes out to all of you, viewers and photographers, who have visited to see the eagles from the safe viewing spots outside the closed area. We honor your integrity.
Thank you!

In the forest, the mighty forest, the eaglet squees tonight.
Hush my eaglet, don't squee my eaglet, there'll be no fish tonight.
I want a fish, I want a fish, I want a fish, I want a fish,
I want a fish, I want a fish, I want a fish, I want a fish,
I want a fish, I want a fish, I want a fish, I want a fish,
I want a fish, I want a fish, I want a fish, I want a fish.

Don't blame me! I was left unsupervised!

to those that post about eagles somehow being harmed by people being nearby and "bothering" the eagles from 70 feet down on the ground under them, I lived in Montana in an area where eagles exhibit their actual behavioral patterns vis a vis human proximity.

They literally could care less about humans being close. They are scavengers, with same mental ways as crows. Look up on youtube the eagles mobbing people, literally stealing grocery bags from folks, building their nests in residential areas, and hanging out anywhere there is free trash and offal.

The birds do not care about human proximity at all, else they would not build their nests, like in our situation, right off the roof edge of an apartment complex, with traffic , and people all around, and the young eagles play chasing rats on a string that the local kids discovered the eagles like to play, like a cat. That there is proof that the eagles DO NOT CARE about human proximity. ( like the famous eagles starting to come back and nest in Manhattan....if eagles were nervous and skittish about nesting near people, that would be the LAST place on earth to nest!

Overt tendencies and proclivity to live amongst and alongside humans is the reason they were almost exterminated and brought to extinction, precisely because in the settler days, they were known for being a grave nuisance, and a pest bird, that made human settlements their desired location to live in, precisely because they are natural opportunistic scavengers. The humans eventually could not dealwith mobs of eagles converging on them all the time, fighting to grab trash and scraps so humans started to treat them as the pests they are, and campaigned to remove their flocks/mobs from human settlements via poisoning, shooting, trapping, etc.

It does a disservice to promote false paranoid emotional based "poor, sensitive birds" Don't buy pictures taken by photohraphers with telephoto lenses because that might make them " nervous" when rhe eagles CHOOSE, ON THEIR OWN, to roost and hang out in the heavily peopled housing tracts behind Vons. Simba also spends time on a snag Juniper up behind the airport, behind community market, watching all rhe traffic, and loud planes taking off. Doesn't care about us people at all, except to scope us out for any easy pickens we leave to score.

@Nature
Thats all the admins have been doing is constantly moving this kind of crap to the threads and continually begging folks to follow that one simple rule. I left this particular chain of posts in the chatbox so that the many viewers of SCM could see what we are dealing with. Right now I am going to delete the outstanding posts in the chatbox that break our simple rule. Going forward, if this continues, the posts will be permanently deleted and the user will be banned from posting in the chatbox. If that user can't be civil in the threads then the next step will be to ban the user from the site for a period of time which includes banning their ability to view the site. This has been going on long enough and I want to make sure that everyone understands that going forward we will be applying this new policy. Thank you for your understanding and cooperation.

If they are moved they should “all” be moved.

I wanted to take this moment to make myself transparent as SCM ALERT can be various people (but is also very automated). This previous post is from me, begging you all, to please keep these arguments/debates to the forum pages and if it is political in nature, please use the Political Discussion Forum. The chatbox was never meant to be a place to argue or debate right and wrong. This is an extremely heated topic and belongs in the forum section of this site. Thank you all!
