  • Simba is looking around the nest to the left and finds a bone from Cookie's remains & picks it up & moves it. He drags a small piece to the back of the nest and then he looks up and sees two hawks or ravens flying over the nest at 3:14. Ravens are also seen flying past the nest. Jackie can be seen flying in low at 3:35 and we see her flying in a circle chasing them off & coming to land on the front limb! I included in regular time & slo mo beginning at 4:19 to see this better. Jackie flies off and Simba is watching her and goes towards the front branch and stumbles and loses his balance at 9:44. He recovers nicely and goes up to the high perch and flaps his wings - he really wanted to follow Mom today!! Simba's mishap is in slo mo as well. Simba is 93 days old - and may be going for a new record on being the oldest eaglet to fledge!! lol Simba will fledge when he is ready so no worries! ♥♥ Thank you for watching!Video captured & edited by Lady Hawk Big Bear eagle cam is located in Big Bear Lake, California.Special thanks to Friends of Big Bear Valley for this amazing cam!Watch live:

    Perfect learning curve for Simba. He sees how Mom protects the nest and drives away intruders. What an awesome Mom! Careful Simba, so glad you didn't fall. He too wants to help drive the intruders away, by squeeing and taking Mom's place on the branch. Great video Lady Hawk!

    Oh wow!! What a great video. Mama Jackie is awesome and cute little Simba is venturing out farther and farther every day!!
    Did you all notice how Simba was dragging around poor Cookie at the beginning? Almost like he was wanting his bro to keep him company. Poor baby.

    Outstanding, Jackie! Chases the threats to her eaglet and straight home to guard. Even though we don’t see them, Jackie and Shadow are always ready! Great save, Simba! You show greater skill everyday! Thanks so much for the captions and slo-mo! Always excellent videos and the greatest narratives!

    Jackie is a magnificent eagle. Watching her climb and land on that perch gave me goosebumps. So beautiful 😍

    The slo-mo fly in by Jackie is very cool. Being able to track her from Simba's perspective as she circles and flies in for a landing is fun to watch.

    Simba can scurry around that nest pretty darn fast. Jumping on branches all over the place, he's going to fledge pretty soon I can feel it. Good Footage LH!!

    Simba has it made. Has a home, regular food delivery, protection and even has a great view! Can't blame him for staying a bit longer and enjoying it all. TY Lady hawk.

    She’s such a great mom all in a days job of protector and provider. Simba I think would have gave them a run for the money lol

    Simba is a character (lovable) and a good housekeeper too - brazen hawks tho - Jackie did a great job in sending them off. Nice balance there Simba - you got it boy!! Eerie background vocals too. Thanx LH - your vids are so great with both normal and slo mo and the arrows too - sure helps us watchers keep track.

    Mum to the rescue. She is never far away, always keeping her eagle eye on her offspring making sure he's safe. Great recovery from misstep Simba.
