It is believed to be Jackie underneath that fresh layer of snow, covering her two eggs. The eggs usually hatch around 38 days and "pip watch," which is a cause for celebration when a pair of birds may soon welcome a pair of eaglets, is set to start soon.

Friends of Big Bear Valley installed the eagle nest cam in 2015.
