Re: Redding, CA - 2019 + 2020 - Bald Eagle Cam

Hi Terri, First off I'd like to Thank You for mentioning Pi, Paddy and Poppy. Oh my gosh but wasn't that a great year!! Jean, Carole and I were doing what we could to help document the nest then. More Jean and Carole because I was working full time. Toward the end I didn't post because there are far...

Re: Big Bear CA Eagle Cam - 2019-2020

Hi Maddy, Philjo, and Merianne. Know this was a hard day for you Maddy. I watched the raven peck at the eggs this morning. Was just praying that it wouldn't pull out a chick. Thankfully it didn't and just pulled out the yolk. When you stop to think about it, had the eggs hatched the chicks would be ...

Hi Terri! Oh I truly do understand you being rewarded by seeing those two beautiful eagles! I feel the same way every Sunday when we do our volunteer shift. Your photos are truly spectacular!
