Two bald eagle eggs laid last month in a nest in Bear Bear are unlikely to hatch, experts said.
- According to CBS News, Mother eagle Jackie delivered the first egg Jan. 11 and the second a few days later near the mountain community of Big Bear, east of Los Angeles.
- Jackie's partner, a male bald eagle named Shadow, has been sharing egg-warming duties during a series of snowstorms.
- The group Friends of Big Bear Valley, which runs the popular livestream, said the eggs are nearly two weeks past their expected hatch date.
- "It appears now that Jackie and Shadow's eggs are not going to hatch this time. We cannot know exactly why — they could have not been fertilized, or could have stopped developing somewhere along the process for any of a variety of conditions and reasons," the group said on Facebook.
