The Press-Enterprise reports that "Biologists leading a third-grade field trip were surprised to spot a newly hatched bald eagle in a nest at Big Bear Lake — the first recorded chick in the San Bernardino Mountains..."

“It’s a really big deal for this area. In Southern California a decade ago, we didn’t have nesting bald eagles, except for the captive breeding program on the Channel Islands,” Eliason [a Forest Service biologist] said. “I’ve studied eagles here for almost 23 years and in other areas, and this is the first time I’ve seen a baby eagle in the nest.”
