11:25 a.m.

Viewers of an online live feed witnessed the second of two bald eagle eggs hatching in Southern California mountains.

The first chick poked its head out of the shell Sunday in the nest near Big Bear Lake. Its fuzzy gray sibling emerged Monday morning.

The mother and a male companion shared incubation duties after the eggs were laid last month.

Both hatchings were seen on live video thanks to a camera trained on the nest in the San Bernardino National Forest east of Los Angeles.

One of two bald eagle eggs laid last month in Southern California has hatched in a nest watched by nature lovers via an online live feed.

The U.S. Forest Service tweeted that the chick poked its head out of the shell Sunday near Big Bear Lake.

The first egg arrived March 6, followed by the second one a few days later. Officials say the mother and a male companion share incubation duties.

A count completed last year found 11 bald eagles living in the forest east of Los Angeles.

The Institute for Wildlife Studies web page has thousands of comments from people watching the feed. The camera was installed by the group Friends of Big Bear Valley.
