It's nearly one of the most anticipated times of the year for animal lovers around the world. The bald eagles pair has returned to Big Bear and have begun setting up their nest as they prepare to lay eggs.
San Bernardino National Forest officials have set up its annual closure of the area to protect the nesting site and, hopefully, the future chicks.
The closure includes:— San Bernardino National Forest (@SanBernardinoNF) December 2, 2020
- A portion of Grays Peak Trail
- Grout Bay Picnic Area
- Open Forest Service land in the area, including some lakeshore areas pic.twitter.com/ZiDLdXru2z
This year, the bald eagles laid its first egg on January 8. A second egg arrived on Jan. 11. Unfortunately, neither of the eggs hatched that season.
