Eagle, chicken or millennial?

Simba the eagle fans from Big Bear and beyond are tuning in to the Friends of Big Bear Valley's eagle nest cam every day to see when Simba will take flight. So far, at 13 weeks and 2 days old, Simba seems quite content flapping his wings and hopping and jumping from branch to branch at the nest. Eagles usually fledge between the ages of 10 and 12 weeks. So, is Simba scared of taking that first big leap to adulthood? Or is he the typical millennial, content to stay at home and let his parents support him? You can join the eagle watch by going to www.friendsofbigbearvalley.org and clicking on the eagle nest cam feed.

Will Simba ever take flight and let his parents experience an empty nest?

That's the question on everyone's minds these days. After being glued to the eagle cam waiting for this eagle to hatch, now we're glued once again waiting for him to fly the coop.

So just what is goat yoga? Not your typical downward dog, this type of yoga is all the rage. Head to Bear Valley Farms Saturday morning to try it out.
