Channel Islands' Bald Eagles tend an egg

West of Los Angeles, another success story unfolds. Although largely gone from the Channel Islands for decades, Bald Eagles have rebounded, including K10 and K26 on Santa Cruz Island.

The pair recently returned to their nest in Pelican Harbor, and K26 laid an egg last week. You can watch a 7-minute video of her laying the egg.

Both adults will incubate it for about 35 days. You can read weekly updates and watch the Eagle Cam, located close enough to see the raptors blink.
