From Friends of Big Bear Valley and Big Bear Eagle Nest Cam:

As we have said before, we are only observers on this live eagle camera. We are privileged to have this view into Jackie & Shadow’s everyday life. There has been much concern from viewers about what has been unfolding in front of us, wondering if this is normal. The behavior we have seen from Jackie & Shadow this year is not what we have witnessed in past seasons. We do not know why they are not incubating the egg, nor do we know the affect this has had on the egg itself. Ultimately Jackie & Shadow are in control of the situation, they are doing what they are doing for their own reasons. Since we are only observers ourselves, we do not have answers to many of your questions. We will continue to observe and let Jackie & Shadow lead the way.

Sending hugs. I do know that eggs are sometimes more resilient than some of the studies suggest - not always, but I have seen eggs hatch that I never expected to survive. And it really seems too early for them to be nesting at this elevation, though I know it sometimes works for them.

Keeping fingers crossed....

Thank you for your hugs Judy! :hug:
I know you've seen a lot of different things happening.
I just want nest life to go back to normal if it's possible and see that Jackie and Shadow are doing well. And we'll see what will be happening.
Thank you again! :grhug:

Oh Maddy, so sad for Jackie and Shadow, and all followers. :cry1: She seemed to be in a lot of pain so I wonder if the egg broke inside her. I have never seen anything like that; and her left leg looked injured too. I sure hope she is ok and the remaining egg is viable. This has been a strange year on so many nests. Blame it on the pandemic. :(

Marianne yes, she was in a lot of pain, it was very difficult for her, I think maybe the egg broke while she was trying to push it out. She was really trying very hard! Poor Jackie. :huggie:

Hugs to you too, Rita! :hug:
What a crazy day! :roll:
