SAN BERNARDINO, Calif. — The second egg of the 2020 season has been laid at a Big Bear area bald eagle nest made popular by a live webcam feed. The egg was laid at approximately 5:09 p.m. on Saturday, Jan. 11, to the delight of thousands of live viewers. The first egg of the season was laid on Thursday evening at approximately 5:30 p.m.

LIVE WEBCAM [Click Here]

“We are very excited to see bald eagles continuing to successfully reside and raise young in this part of the forest,” said Marc Stamer, district ranger for the Mountaintop Ranger District. “But that success is shared by the public who continue to adhere to an area closure around the nest.”

Bald eagles are known to abandon nests, eggs and young when feeling threatened by human activities. A forest order [Click Here] has prohibited entry into the Grays Peak area since Dec. 1, 2019, and will continue until nesting activities have concluded in the spring or summer. Snow play and off-trail use in the area is not allowed, nor is using the lower section of the Grays Peak Trail and Grout Bay Picnic Area. A map of the closure can be seen here [Click Here]

People curious about the nesting activities can tune in anytime, day or night, to the live webcam feed provided by the nonprofit Friends of the Big Bear Valley [Click Here], which installed a camera in 2016. Viewers will see the parents, nicknamed Jackie and Shadow by locals, sharing incubation duties and may catch the young eagles hatch after the typical 35-day incubation period, putting it around Valentine’s Day.

For more information about bald eagles and viewing opportunities, call the Forest Service 909-382-2790.

I hope they leave them alone this year, that one last year. The one looked so stressed out after being stuffed in a bag and banded it seemed to never recover from the trauma and died the next day.

Valentines day will be fun with them hatching.
I'm going to call them Cupid & Valentine

Millennia’s sorry to tell you that there is no Santa Clause, no Easter Bunny, No Tooth Fairy, Have a great day

City has announced 'new' plan for vacation rentals and I quote " City staff have considered numerous concerns and helpful suggestions from our residents, vacation rental owners, and vacation rental managers over the past several weeks," Would love to hear from anyone non government or city official that was consulted in these 'suggestions'?? Thinkingi we are being railroaded once again.

Just read newest edition of Elevation 6752 - Big Bear Newletter. There are a number of items included that now have me convinced the city officials have completely lost all cognitive thought and common sense. Really, a lakefront park at the Village. I guess the traffic problem isn't bad enough yet. A gondola public transportation. How about fixing the regular public transprotation. And I have some comments in General Discussion/Vacation Rental Issues concerning the 'new' plan the city is going to present to us. wow. Not putting soapbox away just yet, I can't believe this stuff.

Kmart 2nd bankruptcy, this is what happens when Corporations' CEOs run companies into the ground and abandon them. Kmart has no purchasing power anymore, with all of the shortages on products due to shutdowns, only companies that have good reputations and $$ can get the goods the consumers want. Even Sam's club can't seem to supply toilet paper during the shortages.

Yep, K-Mart is only socks and underwear basically now. Needed new silverware, nope. Needed a couple of pillowcases for a rental, nope. Needed a replacement coffee maker, nope (thank you DIY), needed some new cheaters, still have those thankfully, can't be blind . Really, why even bother. Just leaving us locals out in the wind once again.

I haven't been to kmart in years so.... I demand a fully stocked kmart for the people!

life is so hard

The Christmas stuff KMart has out is just a few fake trees. It is committed with the leftover patio tables. We all deserve better than this.

Hank, I've been voting by mail for years, but the last four years it has been very convenient to drop at my local polling place, there was zero line & dropping a completed ballot was just walking in & depositing in the box.

There is a big advantage to taking time at home to fill out ballot.

Have a great day from all of us at SCM!

Funny you guys mention that, I was asking someone about kmart today, they told me how bare it is, but the Christmas stuff is out! Is it a supply chain issue or they closing down?

Oct 22 : 09:26pm
Just spent ten minutes explaining and hit Submit. POOF post gone. Too long... holeinbow pathetic is putting it too lightly. The place should just be closed.
We could start a thread about it.
