It started late afternoon Thursday, March 18, the first pips, or signs of hatching in a bald eagle nest 145 feet up a pine tree near the shore of Big Bear Lake.
The nonprofit Friends of Big Bear Valley, which runs the nest cam, also shared baby’s first communication that came around 9 p.m. Thursday from under the mother.
“Jackie awakens to check on the eggs and baby eaglet chirps from inside the egg!” the Facebook post reads. “This little one has a lot to say and just might take after its mama.”
A Friday morning post on the YouTube page said the hatch is still in progress, and there are no signs of pipping yet on the second egg, which was laid several days after the first.
