BIG BEAR BALD EAGLES UPDATE from Friends of Big Bear report the remaining egg has passed the expected time frame during which a hatching would usually occur. The first egg did begin to hatch but then circumstances resulted in the eaglet not surviving. So, another unsuccessful season has passed with no new eaglets. This is the live cam link on the nest where the eagles continue incubating this last egg though it seems unlikely it will hatch.
Coincidentally, while periodically checking on the bald eagles activities I happened on to a live video of a hummingbird nest in Thousand Oaks, a community west of where I live. I thought it was an interesting contrast comparing the eagles size, their eggs, and that of this Allen's Hummingbird named Emerald. This iridescent green hummingbird's two eggs are expected to hatch around the first of April for any who might be interested and can be viewed at this link: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=z3HDROQc2eU.
This is Emerald's second clutch this year having successfully had Ruby and Sapphire fledging in early March. Unlike the bald eagles she does all the incubating herself and the male parent has no further involvement with the brood. Reportedly Emerald constructed this nest on a string of Christmas lights and has raised several other clutches in previous years as reported by YouTube's Hummingbird Spot.
