More info: Historically, bald eagles only wintered in Big Bear Valley in order to find sources of food including waterfowl and fish which were not available further north, in the frozen lakes.
In 2012 the first bald eagle chick (at least the first in recorded history) hatched in Big Bear Valley and the chick was successfully raised to fledge. Since then, about a dozen bald eagle eggs have been laid with just a fraction of them hatching and growing to maturity. Roughly 50% of eaglets survive to adulthood, making protection of their nesting habitat that much more important.
This Big Bear Valley bald eagle webcam was first installed in the fall of 2015 and recorded its first bald eagle nesting season in 2017.
