Big Bear Jackie & Shadow's eggs update.  I've been checking on them every day and here is the status.
Jackie this morning  :-*


The U.S. Forest Service made an announcement Friday, 02/21/2020, regarding Jackie and Shadow's eggs...here's what they said:
"It?s hard to say this, but the odds of our Big Bear bald eagle nest?s eggs will hatch this year are diminishing each day. We?re on day 44 and day 41 since the eggs were laid. They typically hatch between 35-38 days; even giving them a day or two extra for slow development due to cold temperatures, the window of successful hatching is closing. We haven?t seen a definite pip (crack in the egg from the chick poking a hole in the shell) in either egg. At this point, we'll be very (pleasantly) surprised if either egg hatches.
There are several factors that could result in a nest failure. The eggs may have been infertile from the start (incomplete fertilization during mating, etc.) or the embryos could have died during incubation (from congenital defects, weather, or environmental factors) or the chicks may not have been able to successfully break out of their shells. Chances are that Jackie and Shadow (as they pair of eagles are known) will continue incubation for another 10 days or so, but they?ll start leaving the eggs unattended for periods of time that will lengthen each day. "
We know all of this is hard to hear and see, it is part of watching nature. We will continue watching the nest and posting about Jackie and Shadow and their actions. Thank you for caring about the eagles and their lives.

Prayers for Big Bear Shadow & Jackie... been almost 60 days and eggs haven't hatched. They have been defending their nest the past 2 days... Shadow has blood on his head and it appears to be an eye injury.  He has been closing it like Mom did.  He'll be OK.  Kinda reminds me of what R & J went through... so maybe the lil ones not hatching is for the best.  There are video's but not going to post them.  I keep them in my thoughts & prayers... one of my favorite nests.  :-*

March 15, 2020
What happened to the eggs, where are Jackie and Shadow?
A-Jackie and Shadow had begun to leave the eggs unattended more often and overnight the last few days. On 3/15/2020, ravens came to the nest, they cracked the eggs open and ate the contents. From what we could see, the eggs were undeveloped and may not have been fertilized or something stopped any development early on.

Jackie and Shadow have visited the nest a few times, but will be spending more of their time in other areas of the territory. We are still in the breeding season for this region and it is possible they could mate again; however that would be very rare considering how long they incubated the failed eggs. We do expect them to continue using the same nest next season but this is nature and anything can happen. We will continue to observe Jackie and Shadow to see what they have planned for the future.
