Kids Find Bald Eagle Chick During School Field Trip in Big Bear
Big Bear is home to snowboarders, L.A. escapees and nature-lovers, and now, it's also home to a bald eagle chick.
The baby bird was discovered by a group of third-graders and their guide on a field trip, reports NBC Los Angeles. The little guy was spotted in a nest built high into a tree in the San Bernadino Mountains, and is reportedly the first chick to be seen in the area in recent memory.
Forest Service district biologist Robin Eliason told NBC that the nesting family means the birds will be around for a while.
"Eagles mate for life and will use the same nest tree for several years," she said, "so we can expect to see bald eagles here year-round for years to come."
Experts believe that the chick was probably hatched around February 11.
