More unfortunate news out of Big Bear.
Jackie has lost another egg.
Once again, Jackie left her nest and ravens paid it another visit, killing her second egg.
As you may remember she laid her first egg of the season on January 7, but ravens got to it.
Her second was laid Saturday, January 9.
And her third was laid January 13, but the egg cracked just moments later.
Eagles lay one to three eggs each year, so we expect we will have to wait until January 2022 before Jackie lays another egg.
Jackie the Big Bear Bald Eagle laid her third egg of the season Wednesday evening.
The egg dropped at 6:00 P.M., but unfortunately if broke just moments after she laid it.
