Eagle Eye

EAGLE EYE: The first bald eagle baby to hatch on the Channel Islands in more than 50 years is coming soon to a computer screen near you. Having cracked out of its shell earlier this spring, it is already the star of its very own reality TV show. The solar-powered Santa Cruz Island bald eagle webcam was officially launched this week by the Channel Islands National Park to allow the public to witness the historic five-week-old chick as it navigates the ins and outs of life outside the shell. You can watch the magic daily from 8 a.m.-6 p.m. at, where the baby bird eats regurgitated fish, explores the nest, naps, and – perhaps as early as late June – learns to fly.
