Young bald eagle OK after fall from Southern California nest
BIG BEAR LAKE, Calif. (AP) — The U.S. Forest Service says a bald eagle chick appears to be OK after it fell from its Southern California nest that has been watched by nature lovers through an online live feed .
The Sun reports the 10-week-old eagle named Stormy tumbled out of the nest in the mountains east of Los Angeles Thursday morning, prompting biologists to begin a search.
Forest Service officials say Stormy was found on a branch about 20 feet (6 meters) below the nest after a roughly four-hour search.
Two fluffy white chicks made their on-camera debuts in February. Stormy’s brother died after a storm in late March.
The camera in the San Bernardino National Forest was installed by the group Friends of Big Bear Valley.
