Hi Philjo, on facebook Irish & Marzell say:
Big Bear Lake Bald Eagles - December 14 at 4:40 AM ·
The eagles have been out most times of day. Juveniles seem to be more to the east end of the lake and Shadow and Mama are in the habitat and surrounding areas. I have no confirmation of identification on Papa or Stormy for about one month yet i'm certain I hear Papa in the distance near shore or to the north of where I stay most often. I also do believe Stormy could be the juvenile I've seen and taken distant photographs of at Juniper Pt. We do have positive indicators that Papa aka Mr B and Stormy are still both in town. Shadow and Mama are most definitely united and have a bond of some kind...

If dad is still around, on the beach, lets wait and see.
Who knows what's going on in this family...

Mrs BB and Shadow. Shadow left a few moments later. Flew off by the exit branch to the right.

Mrs BB then went up on the left branch and flew off. Neither of them returned this evening.

Did you all see Mom and Stormy on the big Bear Valley float in the Rose Parade today? This photo is a bit out of focus---was from a video but I thought you might like to see it anyway

Good morning, Rita, Ferenz and all! I'm not that good at judging the age of eagles - has there been something said about Shadow's likely age? If I had to guess, I'd say he's a fourth-year bird (which as I understand it means he'd be 4 years old this spring) - he seems to have more dark feathers than I'd expect on an eagle that's almost 5 years old. I know of one female who nested successfully as a 4-year-old (K46 from the IWS nest at Pelican Harbor on Santa Cruz island off the coast of California; her mate was 5) - but am not remembering a 4-year-old male raising chicks, though it may well have happened.

Anyway, if there is any info about Shadow, I'd be interested to know what the experts say. Thanks!
