BIG BEAR, Calif. (NEWS 8) - A bald eagle in California's Big Bear Valley laid a second egg at a nest where a live webcam is placed. 

It was laid Saturday, March 9 at approximately 5:25 p.m., the first egg was laid on Wednesday, March 6. The nest in the Fawnskin area is about 120 feet in the air near the top of a Jeffrey pine.

Forest Service officials say if all goes well, the hatchling should appear around April 10, following a 35-day incubation period.

Bald eagles migrate each winter to several spots in the San Bernardino and San Jacinto mountains, including Big Bear Lake.

Currently, a live stream is capturing the incubation process of the two parent eagles. The Friends of Big Bear Valley operates the webcam.

The egg laying comes at the tail end of the Forest Service’s annual eagle count, now in its 40th year, according to Friends of Big Bear Valley.

Here's a video from Vicki of Jackie laying Egg #2.
