Last month, LAist told you that two bald eagles had mated and laid eggs on Santa Cruz Island, one of the five islands in Channel Islands National Park. "Great news," Yvonne Menard, spokesperson for park, exclaimed this afternoon. "We have just had two new chicks hatch at the Pelican Harbor nest on Santa Cruz Island." Thankfully, the eagle nest is under the eye of a live webcam. If you're lucky, you might see the two chicks make an appearance. The re-burgeoning Bald Eagle island population was wiped out when the chemical DDT entered the ocean ecosystem. Santa Cruz Island is located about 20 miles from Ventura Harbor.
